Discovering Old Huddersfield

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

On the approach back to St. George's Square notice the building on the right hand side of Railway Street. This was built in 1871 as an estate office for the Ramsdens and the painted shields along the side are those of the families joined to them by marriage. As an end to the tour, it is worth taking time to pick out the several different species of birds and animals to be seen in the carvings that adorn the building and to look also among the carved foliage for the little man displaying his bare bottom. It is said that this was the parting shot of a dismissed mason. He is not easy to find, but he is there.
