    Default Brockbank and Mellor.

    Anyone here got any info' on this building,at the bottom of Seel st? It's the original frontage,with the names Brockbank and Mellor on it,but with a completley new/different building behind! There are now,several buildings in that area,that have been "re-designed" for different uses,which is great,as the design and brickwork, is generally,much more ornate than usual!

    An 1879 directory, The Commercial Directory and Shippers Guide, lists Brockbank & Mellor, wine and spirit merchants, at 17-19 Seel Street. The reuse of the front of old buildings seems to be a modern trend... nice to see they keep something of the old at least.

    Thanks for that Chris! I took a couple more,of refurbished buildings in the area,so your street directory might come in handy!
