This building forms part of a continuous street frontage range made up entirely of manufactories, all small-scale and detailed in domestic style, reflecting the earlier C19 pattern of converting and extending houses to form workspaces and offices. These are, however consciously designed and planned , and purpose-built industrial buildings. Together with the parallel range of buildings to the west side of Vyse Street, they form a solid block of back- to- back manufactories, all with workshop ranges to the rear of the frontage buildings. Eccentric plot shapes were fully utilised in this area, now with the densest such survival in the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter , recognised as a manufacturing district of international significance.
