Some time before 1891 the Manchester architect George Faulkner Armitage (1849-1937)
was commissioned to add on a billiard room for Henry Martin, with internal
joinery of such high quality that it was accorded a double page illustration
in The British Architect of February 1891. G F Armitage had presumably established
a reputation in Huddersfield with his art furniture and interior decoration
shown at the 1883 Huddersfield Exhibition, and illustrated in The Cabinet Maker
and Art Furnisher of 1st September 1883. The billiard room has apparently
been altered, but there is much elaborate late C19 joinery inside, which may
be by Armitage.
