Statement of Interest

Standing between 1-7 and 17-23 Burns Statue Square (see separate list descriptions), Nos 9-15 offers an interesting combination of developing late 19th century and early 20th century architectural style. From Nos 17-23 Burns Statue Square (1894), it takes the dominant stack feature and uses it to break the facade of the building, as James A Morris does in a fully developed, lighter Freestyle manner with his oriel tower feature in 1-7 Burns Statue Square (1901).
