surviving internally. Rectangular composition to front, extended to rear when the horses gave

Regular 16-bay, three-storey facade to Brick Lane, each bay having one round-arched metal
casement and one round window in arcade surround linked by ground-floor plinth and second
floor band at impost level. Heavy cornice and frieze leads eye to central aediculed pediment

partially retains a fireproof iron floor construction, most complete at the southern end.
