location

 

The area surrounding Canada House originated as an open rural area adjacent to the then small town of Manchester.  As the small town developed in the early 19th Century, it progressively expanded along Oxford Street/Oxford Road. Originally this part of Manchester was largely occupied by substantial mills, engineering works and iron foundries.

By the middle of the 19th century, the area was starting to become a less industrial landscape.  This was largely due to the huge increase in demand for packing and shipping warehouses, which harnessed the railway and canal networks.

H.S. Booth & Company constructed a number of large modern packing warehouses on Oxford Street and Chepstow Street, culminating in the construction of their last building, Block D, now known as Canada House.
