SY6878NW HOPE STREET
873-1/24/193 (East side)
Warehouse. Mid C19. Rubble and coursed rubble, asebstos-cement
PLAN: a long plain warehouse set with a wide gable to the
street, with complete floored upper level; at the rear it is
connected at the upper level to No.1 Malthouse (qv) in Hope
EXTERIOR: the street front has rubble to approx 2.2m height,
then squared stone; possibly raised on a former boundary wall.
A deep loading door in brick jambs and with haunched brick
segmental head and wood sill at floor level is set above a
pair of doors in a widened opening with a similar segmental
brick head showing the original width.
The rear wall is in good squared rubble, with an enclosed
bridge at the upper level connecting to the malthouse; below
is a glazed door under a segmental brick head.
INTERIOR: retains 2 rows of wood posts with slight chamfered
corners in 4x3 bays, carrying deep C19 joists and a plank
floor stopped short of the walls, and revealing the ends of
wide trusses above.
This is an important survival in this area which formerly had
a number of similar storage buildings. Included for historical
