Not sure as to what the building was, perhaps some sort of warehouse.

Couldn't find any history on the place, if anyone has any info then get in touch!

Just opposite Churchills on Chorlton Street right next to Canal Street.

In 1891 it was listed in Grace’s Guide as a cotton warehouse owned by John H. Earl, stretcher, finisher, maker up and packer.

In recent years it housed the Comedy Club.

Earlier this year planning permission was granted to convert it into a 41 bed apart-hotel with a restaurant/bar in the basement and ground floor.

John H Earl Ltd was a textile finisher based in Chorlton Street engaged in wet and dry finishing of mainly cotton piece goods, curtain and upholstery fabrics, rotproofing and showerrproofing finishes, along with calendering and schreinering. They process high quality print fabrics for top end fabric merchants and manufacturers such as G.P. & J Baker, Sanderson Fabrics Monkwell etc.
During the second half of the 20th century, the company was owned by a gentleman farmer from Llandegla, Wrexham who visited the factory once a week.
In 1976 the opportunity to move to Anglesey became available, and as the building and the whole of the Chorlton Street area was due to be re designated as a non industrial zone, with the threat of compulsory purchase and the loss of the business, the owner took up the attractive incentives to move, lock, stock and barrel, to Anglesey. The building was subsequently sold to a Manchester merchant and was used as warehousing.
