Discovering Old Huddersfield

Extract from Discovering Old Huddersfield (1993-2002) by Gordon & Enid Minter:

The block of buildings between the Market Place and King Street (opposite the Brick Buildings) dates from 1900. Notice the ornamental relief proclaiming the Boot and Shoe Hotel which was built on the site of the original Boot and Shoe Inn dating back to the early nineteenth century. For a time, in the 1860s, William Cowell the landlord of the old Boot and Shoe was also a cab proprietor — no doubt a useful arrangement for any customers who might experience difficulty in walking home.
