  The Confidentials

 The Lost Suburb Of Manchester: Edgar Wood's Immaculate Dream

Although credited to the firm of Harry S Fairhurst, it was, says Morris,
‘designed by Sellers with assistance from Wood,
 in their earlier art deco styling. Brick pilasters, broad at the corners, run the full height of the structure,
 alternating with canted bronze windows subdivided into ‘leaded lights’ (now replaced).
 The piers and corners were subtly highlighted using recessed mouldings,
 and the ground floor and top were faced in Portland stone with art deco ornament.
 Had it been completed, Lee House would have been one of the highest buildings in Europe
 and is a fitting climax to the unique architectural partnership of Wood and Sellers.’
