- (Royal Bank
of Scotland)
- II
Bank, originally the Manchester and Salford Bank. 1892. By
Edgar Wood. Buff-coloured terracotta with clay tile roof. 3
bays and 3 storeys. Panelled round-arched door between bays
2 and 3 with blocked archivolt and coat of arms above. Three
3-light mullion and transom basket-arched windows within
segmental recesses on the ground floor. Secondary doors to
extreme left and right. Similar 4-light windows on the first
and second floor the latter within bold gabled dormers. All
windows have leaded lights. The gabled dormers are only
narrowly divided by the plane of the roof which continues
down to a deep eaves projection. Elaborate rainwater heads
with rosette motifs and downpipes with flamboyant brackets
convey the rainwater to a trough at first floor sill level.
The trough has bead-and-reel enrichment and channels water
to an internal drain. Bold ridge chimney stacks. Rear in
brick, partly rendered. Interior: various internal features
show Art Nouveau influence. Timber fittings, including
panelled doors with carved roundels above and brass
ironmongery are all of a high standard.
