SY6779SE ST MARY STREET 873-1/20/293 (East side) No.18A Midland Bank


Includes: Midland Bank BOND STREET. Bank. c1900-1910. Portland stone ashlar, some red brick banding in stretcher bond, slate roof. A richly detailed building in Edwardian Baroque, returning to Bond Street with an inset quadrant corner crowned by a lead cupola. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic, 2 windows to St Mary Street and 4 on the return. The main front has a tripartite sash dormer with central pediment, above sashes with vertical glazing bars in moulded stone architraves and to moulded stone sills on small brackets. The banking hall has 2 lofty arched lights with margin bars and radials, in channelled rustication and voussoirs, with a recessed plain band and deep reveals, to a sill band, above a plain podium course. The Bond Street front is similar, but with 2 dormers, and the ground-floor lights are carried down into the podium to a low sill level at a plinth, dying to the pavement to the right. The corner turret has 3 vertical oval oculi in architraves with a keystone, with cornice articulated above modelled pilasters, above 3 sashes to wide panelled stone mullions above a moulded sill band with brackets. The paired panelled doors on 2 sandstone quadrant steps, have a moulded architrave, and pulvinated enriched frieze plus cornice, following the quadrant, under a carved stone swag. A broad plat band above first floor, and the first-floor windows are set in banded stone with brick, above which is a deep plain frieze band and stone modillion cornice with secret gutter, and cast-iron downpipes. The hipped roof has a bold leaded roll moulding to a flat central section, and has raised coped end gables. A large central stack. INTERIOR not inspected. Carefully detailed in good materials, this is characteristic of the pre-war banking tradition and a fine example of Edwardian Baroque.
