|Simon Building, the University of
Brunswick Street and Oxford Road
The Simon Building is home to the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine; the Medical and Human Sciences Faculty Office, and Psychiatry. I believe that it was named after Ernest Simon who was an industrialist and later a politician. He was a Manchester City Councillor, Lord Mayor of Manchester in 1921 and later an MP representing Withington. He was knighted in 1932 and became a Peer in 1947. The building contains a cafe called "Potter's" after Shena Potter, Ernest's wife, who opened the building. The Shena Simon campus of the Manchester City College is named after her.
