Sparrow, Hardwick & Co.

Sparrow, Hardwick & Co. was a textiles manufacturing company established by John Sparrow at 10 Major Street, Manchester in the mid 19th century.

In 1899 the company built a large baroque style warehouse and showroom at 107 Piccadilly, Manchester. Under its Sparwick brand, the company produced such items as towels, tea cloths, cotton blankets, cotton sheets, curtain nets and pillow cases.

Sparrow, Hardwick & Co. traded until at least the 1970s. Today, the warehouse building functions as a hotel.
