Royal Infirmary, Oxford Road, Manchester
Large stripy affair in red brick and Portland stone, as was quite fashionable in Edwardian times. By E.T. Hall and John Brooke, 1905-08, who won the architectural competition. Pevsner calls it Hall's great work suggesting his contribution was the greater. The two towers stand out. Grade II listed.
It has grown to be "a large teaching hospital for Manchester University’s Medical School, and a specialist regional centre for kidney and pancreas transplants, haematology and sickle cell disease.... the Accident & Emergency Department sees around 145,000 patients each year."
