The Nottingham Council House Cherubs

--

These little cherubs will be found on the front of The Council House just under pediment and above the balcony windows. They depict
various trades and activities that were going on in the area and are very similar to those found on other Cecil Howitt buildings, namely
the Raleigh building at Lenton and the Home Brewery at Daybrook (See separate sections). 
There are more examples of 'Howitt's Cherubs' in the actual council chamber - See thumbnails

Though shown below as separate panels, they do in fact appear on the building as a continuous frieze that passes behind the columns. 
Where this occurs, it is impossible to photograph and as a result there are short sections missing from the pictures displayed below.  
They are presented in the order that they appear on the building from left to right. Scroll down to view.
