Albion Wharf

This building on Albion Street is like Trinity Court on John Dalton Street in that only the facade of the original building remains.  Albion Wharf was built in 1868 by Mangnall & Littlewood.  The building behind the facade was built in 1991 by Provan & Makin and features full-height gables.  The windows in the original facade have attractive wrought iron traceries.  As my sketch map below shows, the building was used in the 1920s as a Blouse Factory and Warehouse.  It was also used as a paper, ink and general store by the Manchester Guardian & Evening News.
