Calcott Bros. Ltd., Far Gosford Street
Established in 1885. Made bicycles in 1886 and moved here in 1896.
Built motorcycles in 1905 and in
1913 they began manufacturing motorcars until 1924
when the company was taken over by Singer.
I am hoping that the window on the left will
qualify for Monday Mural. Here is a closer look below.
I do like these historical windows.
This Renaissance-style exterior has always caught my eye.
It is red brick with cream terracotta.
The company offices faced the road here. The factory complex was
to the rear. The building is now used for student accommodation.
Below is a clever sign in the shape of a
Calcott radiator which tells the whole story. You will
need to click on image to enlarge.
So there you have it -
