This plaque on a street caught my eye today (August 14 2014). What is the street? Cryptic clues just for now please if you know.

I hope this 'What & Where?' is welcome in view of some implications in recent weeks that they may not be.

Is this the end of the story ...
or the beginning of a legend?

Speaking of blue plaques I can remember 15 years ago a friend of mine was living in the basement of what we called the 'Swallows and Amazons' house on Ash Grove in Hyde Park which bears a blue plaque as it was the former residence of author Arthur Ransome. However the carryings on in the basement bedsit were more akin to something from Irvine Welsh's 'Trainspotting'...

Hiya tilly. Regular Smiley

It's the same with me. Apart from a very few I never know a What & Where? If I had not sent them in I would probably not even know the answer to the W&W's that I've sent in! Tongue

Noticing the object in a small alcove on this building I took this photo on April 1 2014 (not an April Fool) and had thought of using it in a W&W? but I decided not to as the quality is poor. It is high up on a building in the centre of Leeds and to take the zoomed-in photo I almost had to break my neck looking up! I thought I would however add it to this thread as a W&W?, so where is the building? The object seems to be eroded and I'm unsure what it is.

Hiya tilly. That made me Regular Smiley.

I tend not to look down nowadays so that I don't bump into people using their mobile phone who are taking no notice of where they are walking. Even more so for those who are not holding a phone but seem to be talking to themselves through headsets (I still find that very odd). Also not looking down lets me see approaching chuggers so that I can avoid them (well there are so many!). It also helps me avoid those people who swing an umbrella as they walk and seem unconcerned that it may injure someone. Rant over! Tongue

When my gaze is down it is surprising though just how many coins are seen. I no longer bother picking up anything less than a 20p. Mind you, some months back now, a coin caught my eye on a pavement and it was a 1948 shilling! Strange thing to find!

I will leave the object on the building photo a little while yet in case anyone wants to guess.

I thought it was time to give the answers. Regular Smiley

The plaque is on the road surface of Park Cross Street.

The object is very near the top of what is currently the Body Shop premises fronting Briggate at the junction with Albion Place (see the photo taken on April 1st 2014). I still wonder what the eroded looking object represents.
