(Formerly Listed as:
Soap works, now warehouse. Lower stages 1841/3, upper 1882.
For Christopher Thomas and Brothers. Brick, roof not visible.
5 storeys; 7-window range. Shallow full-height
segmental-arched recesses have segmental-arched windows with
iron frames; a polychrome Florentine battlemented parapet,
with decapitated corner turrets and octagonal SW chimney;
gable ends each of similar 2-window range with oculi.

HISTORICAL NOTE: Built for Charles Thomas Brothers' soap
works. Loxton's engraving (c1890) shows machicolated towers to
the E end, and a bellcote to the gable of the W end. The
conventional stripped elevations are embellished with
distinctly Florentine or Sienese Quattrocento details; it is a
prominent townscape feature.
(Loxton S L: Bristol: 1885-).
