Manchester, 2-4 Clarendon Road, Oxford Road

The company had only just moved its Northern Offices out of Clarendon Road when Manchester was bombed.
 
The heaviest bombing raids occurred on the nights of 22/23 and 23/24 December 1940, killing an estimated 684 people and injuring 2,364, becoming known as The Christmas Blitz.
 
Along with the major damage inflicted on Manchester Cathedral, the Royal Exchange and the Free Trade Hall, our premises in Albert Street were destroyed.  By January we were re-housed in temporary space in Urmston, as this note to customers shows.
 
The main picture shows the 'Christmas display' at Clarendon Road in 1955.
