Long Description:
The terrace overlooking the Old Market Square, Nottingham, has eight massive columns, above are 21 figures representing the activities of the Council, by Joseph Else.

"Much of the external statuary is by Joseph Else (1875–1955), Principal of the Nottingham School of Art (now part of Nottingham Trent University). Else was responsible for the famous lions guarding the entrance, for the frieze above the Ballroom windows (representing ancient local industries such as bellfounding and alabaster) and for the figures in the principal façade’s pediment (depicting the arts and public service). A pub overlooking the Square is now named after Else."
