Mawson Monument - Undercliffe Cemetery

     This is a portrait of architect William Mawson (1828-1889).  Partners Lockwood & Mawson were the architects responsible for many fine buildings in the Bradford area such as the Town Hall, Wool Exchange and Salts Mill and village.  The portrait is mounted on an Graeco-Egyptian style obelisk which is itself a Grade II listed building.

  1. I'm just about to do a brief series on Undercliffe Cemetery on my blog. Great minds and all that.. One of these days we will be snapping photos in the same place and not know it!
