10 Charlotte Street, Manchester
Excellent former warehouse built c1865 with a stone ground floor and quoins. Pevsner comments on the use of sills and window pediments to "create a sophisticated interplay between vertical and horizontal." Grade II listed.
One of a fine series of mid-C19th former warehouses on the south side of the street, built between c1850-65 to the designs of Edward Walters "in his personal and highly influential interpretation of the palazzo style" (Pevsner). Almost all occupy a whole block (to allow access to loading bays at the side), are of fine brick with stone dressings, and of five storeys and basement. "What matters in all is the conscientious and discriminating decoration, the amount of which depended on the purse of the client."
