Warehouse Sculptures

53-55 Leeds Road in Bradford is home to a Eli Milnes designed warehouse, built between 1859-62. The architectural sculpture in the form of roundels is wonderfully original and lighthearted. From the entrance you can see a bird in flight carrying an olive branch of peace in its beak, sheaves of wheat, a globe, a beehive (symbolising industry), a quirky camel with a wool pack on its back, a woman, and lastly a steam ship.
