Miss Selfridge, 64-66 Linthorpe Road (former jewellers)

  • Description

    A prominent corner building, it once exhibited an attractive display of jewellery. Formerly owned by watchmaker Matthew George Collingwood, a businessman with an active interest in local matters who served as Mayor in 1890. Originally the building’s east elevation was only two bays long, but the architect was asked to extend it in an identical style by a further two bays. Built in a neo-Jacobean style with many classical features, it has rendered walls and a slate roof with Dutch gables. The elevations have two gables on both the Linthorpe Road and Corporation Road sides, with different designs for each pair. The corner of the building is curved, with a round turret surmounted by a lead conical roof and finial to the attic storey. The windows are in pairs; on the first floor these are divided by pilasters with strapping in a derivative of a Tuscan design; on the second floor they are divided by ionic pilasters. Each storey is separated by elaborate cornicing.
