34-48 Rochdale Road, Middleton

The document, "The Buildings of EDGAR WOOD Architect, Designer, Artist & Craftsman in Middleton Town Centre". published  by Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council, describes 34 to 48 Rochdale Road as,  "... an asymmetrical terrace which, uniquely, has a pair of overlapping gables as its main feature with a corner oriel window over the shop entrance. Doors have flat canopies held by iron stays while fanlights above light the interiors. Here, several years later, Wood's interpretation of the vernacular had become increasingly free and inventive. The early photograph shows the original beauty of the terrace now largely hidden by modern alterations. It was at once comfortable and homely, yet sophisticated and artistic."
