pilastrades with carved capitals to the upper floors on
shallow corbels, to a moulded frieze and pediment, and carved
lion heads to the returns; 18/19 has a third storey added in
place of the pediment. Openings have splayed surrounds: 2
doorways to the middle, blocked to No.18, single-window range

have fourth storey added.
INTERIOR: entrance lobby, to a central passage and top-lit

unusual design. Goodridge was the architect of the original
