Includes Nos 29 and 31 East Parade. Large warehouse with chambers on
corner with East Parade. The design is an exception to the predominant
Italianate style of the precinct known as "Little Germany", being of Scottish
Baronial derivation. Appropriately built (at a cost of £8,500) for a
Mr Walter Dunlop and equally not by a Bradford architect but a design of
1870-71 by George Corson of Leeds. Three tall main storeys, attic and basement.
Seven bay sandstone ashlar front, the corner chamfered up to second floor
creating effect of overhang. Bold rope moulded stringcourses and weathered
sill courses. Deep stepped corbelled eaves. Four stone gabled dormers set
in parapet. Steep gable end slate roof, crow stepped gables,grouped shaft
external chimney stacks flanking. Projecting centre bay treated as tower
with bartizan turrets flanking at attic level, pointed slate roofs. Tall
doorway with weathered coping of basement stepped up over as label. Canted
oriel bay window above. Otherwise single and paired windows with roll moulded
edges to reveals. Gothic cast iron area railings. False stone cannon water
spouts to tower. Return to East Parade has flanking crow stepped gables and
similar but plainer detailing. Gabled dormers. Long range of ornate glazed
attic lights and sky lights to roof down each side, behind Peckover Street
front.
