(?) 1855 by Thomas Hague (Hitchcock: C19 and C20 Architecture). Office building
of painted stone and red brick. 5 bays. 4 storeys. Ground and 1st floors linked
by thin stone piers rising to form tall openings with rounded angles between jambs
and head; the slenderness of the piers is accentuated by a cavetto moulding continuous
arcnind the angles and across the heads. Those tall openings contain recessed windows
with moulded timber mullions and only a narrow transome between the 2 floors.
The design is visually reminiscent of a framed structure of cast iron.
Upper storeys with architraves to windows. Simple crowning cornice with egg and
dart enrichment to bed mould. Return elevation to Royal Exchange Avenue of 3 bays
similar to main front.
