A terrace of the third quarter of the late 19th Century with shops on the ground
floor and 2-storeys above. Each house is one window of coupled sashes wide; the
end houses have canted angles and 3 single windows on the return. The terrace is
of pale pink terracotta brick with terracotta dressings.
On the ground floor the shopfronts are framed by piers with corbel blocks above.
The piers take the form of high plinths carrying Corinthian columns with helical-
twist dadoes.
The door of each end shop is set in the canted angle where piers frame it and
support the fascia.
The lines of the piers continue through the upper storeys to the modillions of the
eaves cornice in the form of vermiculated quoin blocks. On the first floor they
flank round-headed sashes within arches springing from a central pier and side
piers. The keystones rise to a continuous cornice and blocking course.
On the second floor the quoin blocks flank sashes in architraves having cambered
heads above a central pier and side piers.
The returns have windows which are single versions of those described above.
The stacks, several of them altered, rise to terracotta cornices. No 81,
