Trafford Press Building, Old Trafford

The Trafford Press building occupies a site on the north side of Chester Road between the Veno Building to its left and the dramatic Duckworth's Essence Factory to the right.

The name on the fa├žade says more about its past than its present because today, along with the Veno building, it is part of a residential complex.  Photographs from the 1960s show the Veno building when it was occupied by the Co-operative Press and called "Progress House".  Which suggests that, at that time, the two buildings were under joint ownership but they certainly were both in the printing business.
