which has semicircular arch over 6-panelled door with
decorative fanlight to left, and half-glazed door with
overlight to street corner flanked by segmental-arched
plate-glass shop windows which are set in a glazed blue tile
surround with white tile panels beneath windows and Art
Nouveau floral decoration to white tile strips flanking
openings. Ground floor to right facing Warren Street has
channelled stucco with 2 square-headed C20 casement windows.
Flat brick arches to C20 casement windows on upper storeys.

HISTORICAL NOTE: the Post Office Directory records the arrival
of "J. Evans, dairyman" in 1916. The shop is one of the best
surviving examples of a Welsh dairy, common in London in early
C20 but now extremely rare. The tilework in this example is
particularly attractive.
