    Hellewell's were "Wholesale and export water-proofers, india rubber and gutta percha merchants and manufacturers, dealers in elastic materials and every description of goods made from these products." (Source: 1936 Gores.)

    The Quadrant in Lime Street was the corner of Eliot Street where the Chinese Restaurant is, and was called Hellewell's corner.
    Their premises in Castle Street were on the corner of Harrngton Street
    Both now demolished.

    I don't know how far back they went.
    You could try older street directories in the Record Office, and they might be listed in the Card Index in the Search Room.

    Hellewell's Building in Castle Street was mid 19th century, but I don't know if it was built for them.
