    The Midland Bank, King Street/Spring Gardens
    This massive Art Deco bank, clad in white stone, is the major work of Sir Edward Lutyens in Manchester (his other being the Cenotaph in St Peter's Square). Lutyens had collaborated with engineers, Whinney, Son & Austen Hall in its construction between 1933-35, and surface carvings were local sculptor, J Ashton Floyd. Still known by most Mancunians as the Midland Bank Building, it is now actually a branch of HSBC (the Hongkong & Shanghai Bank of China). Successive irregular "stages" are set back or stepped in keeping with the ziggurat style popular in the period. The ground floor banking hall has large arched windows on all four sides.
