Thomas Mynshull, Eternal Benefactor
It’s amazing the amount of interesting buildings we pass each day of our life. I am fascinated by this building – Mynshull House, on Catheaton St Manchester City centre.
Puritan Thomas Mynshull, a 17th century chemist and druggist bequeathed money earned through the two houses that formerly stood on this spot, to be spent on apprencticing healthy local boys to respectable trades.
It was rebuilt in 1890 with lots of fancy corbels and bits of sculpture and is Grade 11 Listed. My favorite bit is the writing on the front.
This is an interesting site about Manchester history
