The fountains are great.

Just a thought, could the workings of the fountains that now reside in City Square be housed in these old Bogs?? Pumps, Pipes and the like have to be put somewhere!!    Cool


For Pete's sake don't let all the happy lunchtime picniccers and pigeons hear that little theory Rangie ShockedShocked - it'll shatter an idyllic illusion !! LaughLaugh


Never mind Pete, they'll just take the P*** Regular Smiley

The works are in that big granite box structure half way across the square, next to the road opposite QH, at least that's where tyou see guys peering and scratching heads when the fountains stop by there own!

Thanks to everyone for sorting this out - its a RELIEF to know what's what Regular Smiley

Notice the lady on the Majestic parapet keeping an eye on things.

Geordie Exile is tryin to find out what happened to that lady. 'appen she got fed up of blushing Wink


Well looking at that photo it would appear there are even more statues that need locating now - quite apart from the two figures who stood on the enterance of the Majestic it would seem there were four more in the square - two on the ballustrades of each set of toilets.
Wonder who they were and where they went ??

They are the same four statues which are in the square today, but they have been moved to their present positions. They are Joseph Priestley, Dean Hook (Bishop of Leeds), James Watt and John Harrison.

I have a few photos of City Square, including all four statues with a bit of info about them, here:

It has gone quiet on that front now!

Confession time here Tasa, until I read this thread then took a closer look when passing through City square I hadn't realised there were 4 statues standing in front of the old post office building.
Having seen them I guessed they would be the same four from the toilet enterances.
Just goes to show how we sometimes go round with our eyes half closed LOL
