The East Street Kiosk

The kiosk before restoration. (West St.) 

Restored and relocated
The former Shelter Hall kiosk at the bottom of West Street has been nicely restored and relocated to the bottom of East Street. A good job seems to have been made of the decorative cast-iron finial and cresting but, so far,  the pendant frieze hasn't reappeared.

  1. I am very glad you have raised this point. Only this morning I stood in front of the kiosk and wondered why it looked so disappointingly unlike the original, and of course it is the loss of the decorative cast iron frieze! I am guessing the reason was that it presented a risk to taller users, to which the riposte might be, why did you not raise the whole structure up a little to mitigate this risk? I hope we see its return. Andrew Doig
