This magnificent frieze is found on the former warehouse of Joshua Hoyle And Sons, cotton spinners and manufacturers of Bury, Lancashire. Designed by Charles Heathcote (1850–1938) in 1904, the steel framed building is faced terracotta, brick and and glazed ceramics. It is now used as a hotel. The letters have a lovely expressive form as seen in the serifs with their swirling terminals and cross bars.
Location: London Road, Manchester, UK.
