Drill Hall detail

This is a portion of the outside wall of the former Drill Hall on St Andrewgate. Now part of Barnitts hardware store it was designed in the late 19thC by Gould and Fisher for the First West Yorkshire (York) Rifle Volunteer Battalion. It has an attractively dressed red and white brick facade inset with tile mosaics one of which is shown above.


  1. Nice details! Today it would probably be plain concrete block.

  2. I think Redpat is right. They do not care about details now, only how much it will cost.
