In yesterdays post I mentioned the architect Richard Harding Watt.
Watt designed the Gaskell Memorial Tower on King Street built in 1907 to commerate the Victorian novelist Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865) whose most famous work "Cranford" was based on Knutsford... the town she grew up in.
Watt also designed some wonderful properties.Legh Road doubled for colonial Shanghai in the opening scenes of the Steven Spielberg film
"Empire of the Sun"
Current properties for sale include one going for £5,950,000 thats $9,539,635.
I couldn't get anywhere near that one.
