Watson Fothergill - Express Offices, Parliament Street. Main entrance
This idiosyncratic porch forms the base for a circular turret running the whole height of the building, in early French Renaissance fashion. However, the arches show the distinct influence of the Moorish architecture of southern Spain. Was this perhaps the catalyst for his distinctive colour-contrasted string courses? Note the finely detailed stone sculpture including the lettering and the three portraits. These are of the Liberal politicians Cobden, Gladstone and Bright.
