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

arched entrance with carved material in spandrels. This building is in an important
position and has a special silhouette which gives it extra value.
