ST 3261 NW 10/59 4.5.79 (Mercury Printing
1885, by Hans Price. Exuberant Dutch Baroque style with a dash of Spanish influence
in the tower. Bath stone with modern weatherproofing. Two bays, the right hand one
3½ storeys, forming a break with shaped gable and multiple pilaster-work, the left
hand one being glazed 2 storey quadrant with mullion and transom windows linking the
Waterloo Street frontage with the street line of The Boulevard. This is emphasised
by a four-staged tower with shaped gabling, corbelled pilasters and an arcaded loggia.
Ornament includes balustraded parapet to quadrant, carved keystones to second floor
of right hand bay, herm-pilasters, a gable tip oculus and shell hood, and a wide-
arched entrance with carved material in spandrels. This building is in an important
position and has a special silhouette which gives it extra value.
