Corner warehouse, 39 Cookridge Street, Leeds. c.1866, for the cabinet-makers Roodhouse & Sons. Red brick and stone, in an Italianate style. 39 Cookridge Street, Leeds. This splendid warehouse has "large segmental and round-arched windows and a fancy corner entrance, with Doric columns in antis" (Leach and Pevsner 447). It was extended behind, for the firm Chorley & Pickersgill, in about 1900, when it was in use as printworks. Only this later date and use are recorded in the Listed Buildings text.
