S.J.Dixon and Son Building, Wolverhampton
S.J.Dixon and Son Building, Wolverhampton
Situated in Cleveland Street, with a direct run into the centre of Wolverhampton before the ring road was built. It, and its painting and decorating showrooms are now totally isolated from the main shopping areas. Are the days numbered for these premises?

This website Archive LinkExternal link says this building, owned by S J Dixon & Son Limited, was erected in 1885 on Cleveland Road by a local firm of builders, Bradney & Co, as an extension to Forder & Co's extension to their 1880/2 factory. Bradney's workmen are said to have used the newly available electric light to extend their working day in order to complete the work.

The building was reported to have been, at the time of its completion, the tallest building in Wolverhampton; but whether or not that included church spires or purely secular buildings was not stated.
