A look at the mural artwork on the old BHS in Stockport's Merseyway shopping centre.
|The mural on the side of the old BHS in Stockport|
BHS became defunct in August 2016, but there are still traces of the brand if you know where to look.
|Made in 1978|
The building is now home to a Poundland store, however there are two small signs bearing the BHS logo and they are visible at the front of the shop.

The side of the building on Deanery Way contains a wonderful mural made up of concrete panels and mosaic tiles and depicts the history of the town over seven hundred years.

The artwork was designed by Henry Collins and Joyce Pallet and created in 1978.
Here's a look at the five panels, starting with the most recent era (the seventies!) and working back to the year 1239...
|Stockport, Cheshire - whether this is, or isn't the case (it isn't), remains a matter of conjecture in the town. It was certainly a big talking point given the location of the recent Greater Manchester Coronavirus Pandemic Lockdown Zone!|
While having a walk round Stockport yesterday evening it was amazing to see the old ghost sign on the rear of the store had been uncovered!
I just wanted to say Thank you. I passed the mosaics the other day and was intrigued by them. Your photographs identifying the different panels was very helpful.
