84-86 King Street, Manchester
84-86 King Street, Manchester
A noble facade by Manchester's most distinguished Classical architect of the time, Richard Lane. Built in 1841-42, the elegant ground-floor arcade sympathetically rebuilt by Charles Heathcote in 1904. Lane's inspiration for his decoration was the Choragic Monument of Thrasyllus which stood on the Acropolis (SJ8398 : Detail of 84-86 King Street, Manchester). He might have seen the illustration in James Stuart and Nicholas Revett's Antiquities of Athens. Grade II listed.
Built for the Manchester & Salford Savings Bank, now occupied by a French restaurant, Le Relais de Venise L'Entrecote, and Allied Irish Banks in the offices above.
