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.

Sorry, I don’t know Dorothy. I’ve looked through my files to try to find links but can’t find anything. I think the first pic is one we took and you’re welcome to use that. One pic is from the link mentioned. Hope this helps.
