Clock tower and gabled frontage of Leicester Central

L1740. The clock tower and gabled brick frontage of Leicester Central Station, photographed in 1951. Although, architecturally, the tower was often thought to be too large when compared with the rest of the facade, both it and the gables were a fine example of decorative Victorian style, and it is regrettable that British Railways later replaced these features with a plain brick wall.
