The Turkey Cafe

Introduction
Hazle found this while visiting Thomas Cook in Leicester c1999. The Turkey Cafe at 24 Granby Street has an original Art Nouveau front she couldn’t resist! It was designed by architect Arthur Wakerley in 1901 for restaurateur John Winn, who owned other themed cafes. Interior and exterior tiling was made by William Neatby at Doulton Pottery in Lambeth. It is painted as a cafe cum “Turkish” sauna with ladies events, rather than the opticians present at the time!

 Restored in 2014 and now also known as “1901”, the building’s date.

 Actual colours when the model was created.
