On the right is House of Fraser. The Grade II listed building LinkExternal link was built in 1939, by J. S.Beaumont, as an extension to the Kendal Milnes store built in 1873 across Deansgate. It was purchased by Harrods in 1919, and was called Harrods for a period in the 1920s, but the name swiftly reverted to Kendal Milne following protests from customers and staff. The Harrods group, along with Kendals, was taken over by House of Fraser in 1959 but the store continued trading as Kendals until 2005, when, after extensive refurbishment, the store was renamed House of Fraser Manchester.
