Shop, now an hotel. c.1860. Two facades of equal importance to
Essex Road and Ockendon Road, set at a shallow convex angle to
each other. Yellow brick laid in Flemish bond, stucco, roof
obscured by parapet. Three storeys to each front. The ground
floor projects as a shop front, two bays to each street,
divided by piers of pink polished granite; the bays to Essex
Road having original glazing and entrances with wooden
doorcases, pilaster-jambs, cornices, overlights and woodwork
decorated with incised ornament. First bay to Ockendon Road
with original glazing, the second bay filled in c.1980.
Entablature as shop fascia topped by continuous run of iron
cresting. First floor on either front has flat-arched windows
with round-arched stucco mouldings linked by springing bands,
the tympana filled with modelled ornament; the windows in the
first bay to Ockendon Road filled in on both floors.
Second-floor windows have sills on brackets and cornices on
consoles with elaborate scrolling ornament above. The Essex
Road front is flanked by a moulded plaster panel to the south
and a curved recessed plaster panel to the corner. Bracketed
cornice with panelled frieze; blocking course with raised
panel at corner with 'JAY' in incised lettering, the panel
flanked by consoles with modelled floral ornament. Between the
second and third bays of the Essex Road front, above the first
floor, a large clock mounted on ornate iron brackets, with
lettering 'ESTD JAY 1862'. A well-preserved example of a
pawnbrokers' and jewellers' shop of the period.
