Bridgewater House, Whitworth Street, Manchester
Huge faience-clad building with a crinkly front formed of canted bays. "Probably the most advanced building of its type when erected ... twenty-six lorries could be dealt with simultaneously" (Pevsner). Built 1912. Grade II listed.
One of several massive steel-framed former Lloyds packing warehouses in the area, all by Harry S. Fairhurst, and all now offices or flats. Pevsner notes that Lloyds "was formed in 1896 and within thirty years was packing and despatching one third of foreign cotton trade in Lancashire".
