SD 80 NE
(east side)
2/12 Nos. 33, 35and 37
(formerly listed in
Manchester New Road)
- II
Row of 3 shops. 1908. By E. Wood and J. H. Sellers. Brick
with glazed tile decoration and reinforced concrete flat
roof. Each of the shops has a replaced shop front and the
brickwork of No.33 has been painted. On the first floor 5-
light leaded timber mullion windows are each flanked by
tiled pilasters which in turn frame distinctive tiled panels
above and below the windows. The panels incorporate green
chevron patterns and each rises above the parapet to be
terminated in a parapet with dentil-type motif. The design
is not only extraordinary in its use of the tiled panels but
in the early use of a reinforced concrete flat roof. Design
drawings illustrated in Manchester City Art Gallery
Exhibition Catalogue, Partnership in Style, 1975.
