GEORGE STREET (South East side),
Nos. 35, 37 and 39a

(Formerly listed as Nos. 37 AND 39A)


Cotton manufacturers' warehouse, now restaurants, etc.
Probably 1840s; altered. Sandstone ashlar, with rear of red
brick in Flemish bond (roof not visible). Rectangular plan
parallel to street, with loading at rear. Basement and 3
storeys, a 9-window range, the basement and ground floor
rusticated (with alternate blocks punch-dressed), a deep
modillioned cornice, and parapet. The basement and ground
floor together form a 9-bay "arcade" of square-headed openings
between narrow rusticated piers with a continuous lintel
dressed as voussoirs over the openings, the 3rd and 6th bays
containing doorways and the others divided almost equally by
linked sills (altered glazing to the windows); the 1st floor
has segmental-headed sashed windows with keystones and small
ornamental iron balconies, and the 2nd floor round-headed
sashes with linked imposts, raised sills, and moulded heads
with keystones. Rear: small gables over the outer bays linked
by a parapet over the centre, sashed windows with flat-arched
heads; and various very large inserted metal extractor ducts.
Interior not inspected. An early example of this type of
building in Manchester.
