There was something very odd about the numbering of Manvers Street. According to the street directory, numbers 17 and 18 were located between Number 12a and Number 13. This places them between Stanley Road and Dorchester Street, roughly where the end of the bus station buildings are now. They would have been almost opposite Fortt's Biscuit Factory which was where the bomb actually fell (and where the modern day building currently occupied by an accountancy company stands), causing the damage to the front of the buildings, and very close to HE2023 in Stanley Road which would have destroyed the back of the buildings.
