Walters, Edward

Walters, Edward (1808–72). English architect. He was in Constantinople from 1832 to 1837 as superintendent of Sir John Rennie's work on military buildings there, before returning to England where he practised in Manchester from 1839. He designed a warehouse in that city at 15 Mosley Street in that year, and followed it with the Silas Schwabe Warehouse (1845— demolished), Brown & Son's Warehouse, 9 Portland Street (1851–2—demolished), and the Free Trade Hall (1855—Pevsner called it the ‘noblest monument in the Cinquecento style in England’ but only the façade survived when an hotel (completed 2004) was built on the site), all of which were in an Italian Renaissance Revival style. Perhaps his most accomplished building was the Manchester & Salford (later William Deacon's) Bank, Mosley Street (1860) a palazzo handled with confidence. He was one of the best provincial architects of the period.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
