taken 7 years ago, near to Rusholme, Manchester, Great Britain

Cobden House, Quay Street, Manchester
Cobden House, Quay Street, Manchester
For all Manchester's embarrassment of Victorian riches, the Georgian enthusiast will find relatively meagre pickings. Pevsner describes this house of 1770 as "the best preserved house of its date in the centre." Sadly, later mutilation of the doorcase detracts from the facade, but otherwise it has been left alone. Grade II* listed.
Richard Cobden, politician and reformer, lived here, 1836-50; it housed Owen's College, precursor to the University of Manchester, 1851-73; later it housed the County Court; and currently it is barristers' chambers.
