Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Manchester: Photo 39
One reason for putting the fire station here was that we're on the edge of a textile warehouse district centered on Whitworth Street. This is India House, designed by the prolific Harry Fairhurst and built in 1906-08 for the largest packer, Lloyd's Packing. The building is steel and concrete; that way, there could be lots of windows, a big plus for people examining cloth, either to buy it or inspect it for packing. Now the building is low-rent housing run by the Northern Counties Housing Association.
