Scotsman's Arms - Kirkgate

Scotsmans Arms Leeds

This picture of a figurehead above a doorway on Kirkgate in Leeds city centre is the head of a Scotsman.

This building at 106 Kirkgate, Leeds was once a Public House called the Scotsman's Arms and all I know of it is that in 1881 it was run by Waller & Sons. Today the building has seen better days and it is home to an amusement arcade.

There are several pubs in Leeds with these carved heads over the doorway, I will try to visit them all and photograph them.
