G.V. II

Commercial premises, now restaurants and offices. 1890's for Sir
William Cunliffe Brooks probably by George Truefitt. Header bond
brick, decorative timber framing and clay tile roof. 5 bays
with 2 storeys (plus attic) and 2 bays on Post Office
Street. Romantic in manner and yet almost symmetrically
composed. Stone plinth, stone bands, decorative timber-
framed eaves band, mansard roof with 3 chimneys. Entrance to
2A and 4A in a central recess with balcony above. On either
side are large shop fronts (little altered) with 2 and 3-
light mullion and transom windows above, 5 windows with
decorative bargeboards, finials and timber-framed gables.
(All windows have leaded lights except for ground floor).
The facade sweeps gracefully into Post Office Street, a

buildings, Lloyds Bank (q.v.) and Nos. 1 and 3 Market Street
(q.v.).
