Art Nouveau Façade

I decided to steer clear of the Roman, Mediaeval and Gothic architecture found in York and opted instead for something a little more modern for this months theme day. This Art Nouveau façade can be found on a shop front in Coppergate. Built in 1908 for G. W. Harding it has an interesting decoration of two partially clad ladies. I wonder what the original shop sold!
Check here for façades from around the world


  1. Now you have me wondering too.

    It's a beautiful building.

  2. it's beautiful and i like the addition of color with the flowers in the windows!

  3. York has everything, I would have to say. This is a stunning facade.

  4. I'm guessing that what these young ladies lack is what Mr Harding sold: clothing. Nice facade.
