I have previously posted about another scrap of the Royal Exchange currently outside the Corus offices, so I was very happy to receive the following photograph from P Swan who previously worked for the council.
At the top of the frieze of the greek style front of the Royal Exchange was a Green Man – in the middle, a symbol for good luck. The whole facade was removed and taken to Cargo Fleet Depot. On the
demise of Cleveland County Council most of it was put in skips and cleared.
Fortunately this part survives and i’m very grateful to Mr Swan for sharing it with me.
