The Zetland public house.

Updated: Jan 11, 2019

Appearing on maps in 1890 was the Zetland Arms at the bottom of Queen Street South in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, UK.

Situated across the street from my studio, this local landmark once known as The Amsterdam Bar in the 1970's has an iconic carved stone name plate above it's door with typography carved into a perspective apex.

Now a student house divided into flats on the corner of a one way system.

Presumably named after the Zetland Mills that once occupied the site further up the street now owned by The University of Huddersfield and soon to be the new department for the creative arts.

At the top of Queen Street South also stood the mighty Zetland Hotel - appears on maps 1851- 1890 now a grade 2 listed building.
