"The last great work", of Edward Walters, in which "his assurance shines through", wrote Pevsner. A distinguished palazzo with rusticated ground-floor pilasters, pedimented windows for the high piano nobile, and above an emphatic cornice, a balustraded parapet adorned with urns and moulded chimneys. Built in 1862 for the Manchester and Salford Bank. Grade II* listed.
It is still a bank. Adjoining it is a sympathetic extension of the 1880s, by Barker & Ellis, and on the far left a sliver of a second extension of 1975 (SJ8498 : 57 Spring Gardens, Manchester).
Manchester's transport planners have paid scant regard to some of the city's great buildings in planning the tram system. The trams have been very successful, but its paraphernalia is often intrusive and it's a pity that more thought wasn't given to how to minimise its visual impact.
