Royal London House

Royal London House occupies the corner of Deansgate and Quay Street.  It was designed in 1904 by Charles Heathcote, the architect of the Onward Building, which sits almost opposite on Deansgate.  Pevsner describes it as "a big Baroque stone block .... Not Heathcote at his best, but the big domed turret to the corner of Quay Street is well handled."  That may have been the case but, as you can see in the photograph below, that dome has been somewhat truncated now.
