Victorian Baker's Shop

  • Description

    " An old bricked-up window provided the site for Neil Talbot's relief sculpture of a Victorian Baker's Shop, at the junction of Carlisle Street and Sunderland Road. The theme was suggested by the former function of the shop premises, and the sculpture's architectural features relate to Victorian shops which still exist in the area. ....Amongst trays of loaves and pies and stands of cakes and pastries, intriguing glimpses of the shopkeeper, a customer and dog invite passers-by - particularly children - to weave their own story round the shop...."
