Tapton [46, 72]
A grand, redbrick edifice with classical columns.
This building takes its name from composer Richard Wagner, who spent a few months renting a cheap basement flat here as a young man in 1839.
During a frenzy of impassioned composition, the young 'Dickie' completed the entire four-part Spin Cycle epic - inspired by the noises and evil nature of a Victorian washing machine installed in said basement. Cleggthorpe's Patented Laundrywoman's Facilitator and Rotary Drum was a commercial failure but therefore had a long-lasting influence on the 20th century: it has even been blamed for the Second World War, as Hitler was inspired by the Spin Cycle to invade Poland exactly one hundred years later.
