Please can anyone provide me with the history of the beautiful warehouse on Vinegar Yard (just of St Thomas Street)? It is the somewhat uniquely shaped (triple-fronted?), four storey high warehouse with faded red loading bay doors.
Does anyone know when it was built? Or, what it was originally used for? Or, if there was a reason for its rather interesting shape? Or, if there was any association between the use of the building and the name of the street (Vinegar Yard)?
Also, does anyone have any old photos/images of it as a working warehouse in the Victorian period?
I've never really understood the argument that you always have to knock everything down before building on a plot. It strikes me that a truly imaginative architect would jump at the chance of finding a way look to incorporate this beautiful warehouse into any design.
