Annotation

The Mercury Court was built 1850 as Tithebarn Street Station, and rebuilt and renamed Exchange Station in 1888. It was the terminus for the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway. It closed in 1977, and demolished over the next few years, with the exception of the frontage, which has now been incorporated into Mercury Court, a modern office block.
