More Worthy Buildings

Following on from this post

and from our "Eccentric Leicester" Tour (nicely curated by Amy) today, we'd like to propose some more buildings for you. Top Hat Terrace, property of Leicester's first private detective, Francis 'Tanky' Smith. This house is on the west side of London Rd between the train station and Victoria Park. Whether revealing his disguises ended his undercover career I don't know. Smith's son also developed Francis St in Stoneygate.

and the Hosier's House - Grade 2 listed, though you'd never know to look. Amy, can you add the info from your tour?
