Part of printing works, now office. 1900-1. By Henry Williams.
For Edward Everard. Red Cattybrook brick with red terracotta
dressings, roof not visible. Double-depth plan. Romanesque
Revival style.
2 storeys and attic; 2-window range. A symmetrical front has
deep moulded impost bands, first-floor sill band and
crenellated parapet, with the attic set well back with a
stepped coping, and a slim octagonal turret with a cupola of
fat columns to a dome, fluted frieze and finial to the right.
Ground-floor semicircular-arched arcade has taller central
doorway, keyed, moulded archivolts with alternate raised
voussoirs, and C20 door. Large semicircular-arched first-floor
and attic windows, with mullion and transom casements with
glazing bars above the transoms. The parapet has gabled end
merlons, the right-hand one above a sunken downpipe with a
good hopper of fluted bowl gripped by dragon.
INTERIOR: largely mid C20; the attic has a braced queen post
roof with through purlins. Part of Everard's printing works,
of which the entrance facade on Broad Street, Nos 37 & 38,
(qv) also survives.
A late example of Bristol's arcuated industrial style, with
decorative details in terracotta of a type supplied by Barham
Bros of Bridgwater.
