Kendal Milne's, Deansgate, Manchester
Built 1939 by J.S. Beaumont, "unlike his usual work, or anything else in Manchester", observed Pevsner. He calls it a "sublimely monumental block ... in the German style of store architecture created by Messel early in the century, but stripped down. Windows are vertical strips of greenish glass blocks, with a barely perceptible camber introducing subtle curves and enlivening the stark [Portland stone] elevations with reflecting light." Grade II listed.
It is now occupied by House of Fraser. It's the place to go if you have gloomy eyes or skin.
