SY6778NE ST THOMAS STREET
873-1/23/351 (West side)
Commercial building. Mid C19. Red brick with Portland stone
dressings, slate roof. In muscular Venetian Gothic, with
practically unchanged facade.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys, 3 windows; a small paired sash, with
arched top lights, and 2 plain sashes, in flush alternating
jambs and to flush lintel and sill bands, above paired pointed
lights with central colonnette shaft, under a continuous label
with small leaf stops, to flush alternating chamfered jambs
and a sill band.
Ground floor has a lofty shop front in fluted pilasters and
consoles to a dentil cornice and deep fascia. The recessed
door with fluted pilasters is glazed above a fielded panel,
and to narrow side-lights. It is flanked by plate-glass
display windows, and all under a very deep transom light, the
glass replaced by plastic sheet. To the left, in a stone panel
and under a simple cornice mould, is a wide pair of original
panelled doors in a moulded doorway with double colonnettes,
and a stilted segmental head over a deep tripartite transom
light, with moulded arch, and spandrels with blind
Above the ground floor are flush alternating quoins, and the
deep eaves, between moulded kneelers to a coped raised gables,
has close-set carved stone brackets. A large brick stack to
the right. The rear wall, in yellow and red brickwork, is in 4
bays, with large 4-pane sashes to segmental heads, an eaves
stack, and a long gabled wing.
INTERIOR: is severely plain, with simple 4-panel doors, but
the main dogleg staircase is retained, with heavy turned
newels to acorn finials, turned balusters and a solid moulded
string; the staircase hall floor is in patterned tile.
Although quite different from the traditional C18 or early C19
Melcombe Regis street front, this is a very characteristic and
well-retained facade, reflecting Ruskin's mid-century
enthusiasm for Venetian work.
