Good idea there. I see that John Thorpe did an article in the Evening post the other night about the clock & bust in the Thorntons arcade. The bust been the duchess of Devonshire. The Leeds Gentlemans exploration society ran that story months ago. http://flickr.com/photos/phill_dvsn/sets/72157600204155069/detail/
