MONSON ROAD (North Side)
Nos 8 to 36 (even)
Terrace, circa 1870, with a parade of shops at street level. Built over four storeys, with ground-floor shops, and residential storeys set back above. The original shopfronts had large canted windows with colonnettes to the corners, and central entrances flanked by slender cast-iron columns with barleysugar shafts; a significant proportion of historic elements survives in several of the existing shopfronts (Nos 16, 18, 20, 26). The top of the parade forms a walkway, bordered by a decorative cast-iron balustrade with integral lamp standards. Round-headed doorways opening from the walkway are accessed by steps from the street; openings between the shopfronts are framed by tiled pilasters. Above the walkway, the buildings are of yellow brick with stucco dressings; the windows have timber sash frames. Each building is defined by a small pedimented gable, some with paired windows and some a single window; beneath this is a double-height canted bay, the angles of the windows having cast-iron colonnettes. Each storey, as well as the eaves, is marked by a moulded storey-band or cornice.
No 8 to 36 (even) form a group.
