surmounted by an enriched cornice. The cornice continues
across No.110, which may retain the frieze behind a C20
fascia.

and blue brick. In third storey the windows are plain with
segmental stone arches to the lights, these having outer
arches of purplish-red brick; impost band as in second storey,
moulded stone stringcourse at sill level. Similar stringcourse
in fourth storey where the windows have flat stone arches; the
piers between the lights have been rebuilt in red brick.
Enriched wood and stone top cornice with imitation
machicolation. All windows have plain sashes with horns.
