rectangular public garden. Red brick, with slight stone dressings and some
rendering, slate roofs. Humane, Arts and Crafts socialist housing design

all executed to a high standard. Long rectangular block with rear
courtyard, at right angles to John Islip Street and with front to Marsham
Street. 5 storeys. 18 windows wide with 3-window returns. Cornice-hooded
entrances in rear courtyard elevation. Segmental arched flush framed
glazing bar sashes and the rendered top floor with close set "weaving shed"
casements, the fenestration grouped to express interior distribution.
Shallow gable over central break of 6 bays, the roof hipped with flat eaves
