Building record MYO3939 - The Banana Warehouse (No. 36 Piccadilly)


The Banana Warehouse has been identified as a Building of Merit in the Historic Core Conservation Area Appraisal for historic interest and a representative of interwar architecture in the area. The Banana Warehouse (No.36, Piccadilly) was the business of FT Burley & Son, wholesale fruit merchants and "banana specialists", and boasted a ripening room. The 2 storey building is now just a painted/ rendered brick facade with large metal frame windows. It is a fairly plain interpretation of the Art Deco style but nevertheless clearly evokes the era. Now a second hand furniture shop.
