Midland Bank

GV II

Includes: Midland Bank BOND STREET.
Bank. c1900-1910. Portland stone ashlar, some red brick
banding in stretcher bond, slate roof. A richly detailed
building in Edwardian Baroque, returning to Bond Street with
an inset quadrant corner crowned by a lead cupola.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic, 2 windows to St Mary Street and
4 on the return. The main front has a tripartite sash dormer
with central pediment, above sashes with vertical glazing bars
in moulded stone architraves and to moulded stone sills on
small brackets. The banking hall has 2 lofty arched lights
with margin bars and radials, in channelled rustication and
voussoirs, with a recessed plain band and deep reveals, to a
sill band, above a plain podium course.
The Bond Street front is similar, but with 2 dormers, and the
ground-floor lights are carried down into the podium to a low
sill level at a plinth, dying to the pavement to the right.
The corner turret has 3 vertical oval oculi in architraves
with a keystone, with cornice articulated above modelled
pilasters, above 3 sashes to wide panelled stone mullions
above a moulded sill band with brackets. The paired panelled
doors on 2 sandstone quadrant steps, have a moulded
architrave, and pulvinated enriched frieze plus cornice,
following the quadrant, under a carved stone swag.
A broad plat band above first floor, and the first-floor
windows are set in banded stone with brick, above which is a
deep plain frieze band and stone modillion cornice with secret
gutter, and cast-iron downpipes. The hipped roof has a bold
leaded roll moulding to a flat central section, and has raised
coped end gables. A large central stack.
INTERIOR not inspected.
Carefully detailed in good materials, this is characteristic
of the pre-war banking tradition and a fine example of
Edwardian Baroque.
