Co-op, Stranton, Hartlepool, Cleveland

This baroque department store was built 1913-15. The use of decoration and impressive architecture in co-operative buildings reflects a sense of civic pride also seen in structures like town halls and market places. The clock tower, with its neo-wren cupola, has become an important local landmark.
