Building acquired by the London and County Bank in 1901. 4-storey corner building
with 3 fronts including a splayed corner bay. No 26 stuccoed; No 28 red brick.
Slate hipped roof. Cornice and parapet. Upper storeys have segmental headed

floor designed by [? Frederick] Wheeler; Art Nouveau decoration; segmental-headed
windows with deep battered sills; doorway on corner with rounded edges and above
it an oriel window with delicate carved leaf ornament to the corbelling. From
the base of door and window architraves rise bulbous shapes [onions?] merging
upwards into tapering shafts which rise as high as door and window heads and

in inverted onion forms at the base of the ground floor cornice. Carving of fine
detail. Still in use as a bank front; now occupied by National Westminster Bank.
