GV II

Shop with offices over. c.1870-80, altered. Probably
iron-framed, with cladding of red brick, dressings of blue
brick and sandstone, slate roof. Shallow rectangular plan
parallel to street, on end-of-block site. Gothic style. Four
storeys and attic, 10 bays; ground floor replaced by C20
shop-front. The 1st and 2nd floors are treated as a giant
arcade of segmental-pointed arches with narrow pilastered
piers which rise from a weathered sill-band and have carved
stone caps and stilted heads, all decorated with blue brick
patterning including bands to the piers, diapering to the
panels between the floors, and banded heads with saw-toothed
arch-bands, the 5th bay containing 2-light windows with
colonnettes. The 3rd floor has a weathered stone sill-band and
windows set in a running arcade composed of pairs of small
2-centred arches with polychrome enrichment, each pair having
a stone colonnette with cushion capital (except the 5th bay
which has triple arches and 2 colonnettes), all under a
deeply-moulded brick corbel-table. Steeply pitched mansard
roof with gabled 3-light dormer window over 5th bay, flanked
by coupled gabled 2-light dormers, all with similar
enrichments. All windows sashed without glazing bars.
Three-bay returned sides in matching style.
