Shop. 1905. Cream-coloured brick with stone dressings, the
ground storey painted. Rear of building is rendered. Slated
roofs; the street range is hipped, with flat top having tall,
ornate guard-rail. Cream-coloured brick chimney in each side
wall. Several red brick chimneys at rear. Deep, narrow fronted
building with lower, but not necessarily later, ranges at the
rear.
4 storeys and garret. 3-bay front in a version of the Flemish
Renaissance style, with brick pilasters flanking and
separating the bays. Entablature with stone architrave and
cornice above each storey. Ground storey has late C20 shop
front. In upper storeys the windows, one to each bay, are
round-arched with moulded stone imposts and archivolts, and
plain keystones. In the wider middle bay the second and 3rd
storeys have a canted oriel window with the remnant of a
pediment on top. In 4th storey above this is a wide window
occupying the whole bay; within it a mullioned-and-transomed
wooden window, the lower middle light with broken triangular
pediment on brackets. The centre bay is continued above
eaves-level as a large, 2-light dormer gable; this has scroll
buttresses at either side and a triangular pediment on top
with carved tympanum and finial.
