Looking at Leodis I'd say in the 60's when the square was remodelled.

This photo (taken today April 29 2012) shows a view if you turn to look back after entering into the Leeds Central Reference Library from Calverley Street. The main feature is a shield-like object but just below it is a small carving of an owl which I suspect may not be that well-known (it does not seem to be mentioned in the Leeds Owl Trail). I will post a closer view of the shield-like object and the owl in my next post.

A rainbow is a ribbon that Nature puts on when she washes her hair.

This is the closer view photo. I like this small carving of a Leeds owl.

Jim they are plastic Eagle Owls taht are supposed to scare off pigeons.I say supposed as Eagle Owls,as a wild spcies,have ben extinct in the UK for many hundreds of years,and therefore the pigeons wont be scared of em.
