and linked in pairs under 4 large elaborate shaped gables;

and cornice over the 1st floor, and a cornice over the 3rd
floor. The ground floor has a wide doorway in the 5th bay

otherwise altered by C20 shop-fronts; the 1st floor has
recessed canted 3-light windows with altered glazing, the 2nd

the 7th and 8th bays which have 2-light windows; the attic has
smaller mullioned windows with 1 and 2 lights in each bay, the
division caused by the outer shafts of the shaped gables
(which are also pierced). The left end presents one bay to
Piccadilly, and the right-hand end is canted, both in matching
style. Interior not inspected.
