Additional Information

The building of the new showroom was no doubt ocasioned by the improvements being effected in the area which widened Kirkgate and opened up Venn Street. Part of Eleanor Bottomley's Carriage Works , together with the adjacent Rose & Crown were demolished in 1884.

The showroom was a free standing single storey building approximately 90 feet x 30 feet, with an extensive area of glazing to allow prospective customers to view her Patent Pentagon Brougham. The original premises ptoudly displayed the Royal Arms.
