Wolverhampton's Locally Listed Buildings


Raglan Street and St. Mark's Road

Listing:   Inter-war offices (cruise liner inspired style) converted to car showroom at ground floor in 1967 for Thomas Attwood garages.  Striking corner tower feature and Attwood neon sign at roof level.  Landmark building on prominent corner site. Locally Listed, approved November 2001.

Comment:   One is not quite sure that the present ground floor windows, and the signage, really do justice to the building.  The rest is in a style which is not uncommon in the city, except for the remarkable tower, which seems  to be more Odeon than cruise liner inspired.  Whatever.  The building falls within the site to be redeveloped by J. Sainsbury for a superstore and other uses.  This building is supposed to be kept.
