SJ8498 : Former Parr's Bank, Spring Gardens, Manchester

taken 7 years ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

Former Parr's Bank, Spring Gardens, Manchester
Former Parr's Bank, Spring Gardens, Manchester
Very opulent, even by bank standards. For a start, the whole facade is of red sandstone. By Charles Heathcote, 1902, in "his usual bold Edwardian Baroque, with Art Nouveau motifs in the ironwork." A splendid dome too, and pairs of Doric columns on very high pedestals and crowned by strange panels and brackets. Grade II* listed.
These days the opulence is reserved for those dining at Brown's. Pevsner remarks that the interior is "amongst the most opulent of its date surviving in Manchester, or for that matter, in London."
