Basic Biographical Details

Name: Frank Southorn & Orr
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1921
Bio Notes: The partnership of Frank Southorn & Orr does not appear to have been formed until after the death of Frank H Southorn on 22 February 1921. His son Thomas Noble Southorn, who had been born in Glasgow on 28 April 1896 and had studied at Glasgow School of Architecture in 1913-14, and who seems to have been seeking wider experience in Manchester at the time of his father's death, appears to have returned to continue the practice as Frank Southorn & Orr. His partner may have been Frank George Orr, but this is not certain.
