Where is this 1892 date to be found?

Postby Leodian » Fri 24 Jul, 2015 1:14 pm

Where is this nice 1892 date located?

I took this zoomed-in photo on July 23 2015 and it was not until I saw the image downloaded that I saw the other nice carvings next to the date on this building in LS1. The netting is presumably to keep pigeons off. I've done a search of SL and this 1892 date does not seem to have come up before. Cryptic clues for now please if you know.

This is irritating, no offence :), because I know I have seen and even taken mental note of this but cannot recall where it is even given the above clue!
I think it was the style of the numbers which caught my eye -- very "curvy" and somehow, to me at least, informal.
Thanks for posting this, Leodian, it's got me thinking.

Hiya LS1 :). Yes.

I don't know about horses but it may be as good a place as any to park cars. That's probably much too easy a cryptic clue. I had thought of saying the horse might have a connection with a wagon train but I decided that may be far too cryptic. I wonder if anyone can however get that last cryptic clue? ;).

Declan MacManus wrote a song about the man in residence's Army (ground floor).

I also think there might be a case of doctoring the photo by Sandy White.

As for the 'oss it's the same colour as the nickname of someone astride another 'oss nearby.

Nicely cryptic tyke bhoy :). Well I suspect so, though the Declan MacManus at least has me baffled (perhaps a reference to Elvis Costello whose real name is Declan MacManus). Yep there is an 'oss of the same colour nearby. Ride em cowboy but perhaps best to keep a distance away after someone eats Wooster's beans ;).

It's time now to give the answer for anyone that still does not know. The date is on Jamie Oliver's Italian Restaurant building at 35 Park Row at the junction of Park Row and Bond Street (I think the short stretch of road leading to Bond Court may still be part of Bond Street). The building used to be a bank at one time and I used it as a What & Where in my 'Where is this place that was once a bank?' thread on March 19 2012, but I doubt I had spotted the 1892 date then. This is a link to that thread http://secretleeds.com/viewtopic.php?t=3793

The photo was taken on July 23 2015. The date is almost at the top well above the 35. I'm still a bit surprised that I spotted it!

Oh, in case anyone wonders what on earth I was going on about mentioning such as wagon train and Wooster I was trying to be cryptic alluding to Ward Bond (Bond Street!) who played Seth Adams in the late 1950s to early 1960s Wagon Train television series (Wooster was the cook).

Ah, there, aye.
