Former telephone exchange, Wharf Street, Leicester
Former telephone exchange, Wharf Street, Leicester
A GPO architects' job, 1958-60, and not a bad one at that. Long and low (twenty-seven bays by five storeys), with distinctive fenestration and rounded ground-floor projections at each end which follow the curve of the road in front.
Unusually for such a building it has been converted to flats.
