The NMRS photograph dating from circa 1880, by AR Edwards shows the building very much as it is now, although without the shopfront in bay to right, nor with the bull-faced render finish to the walls. The adjacent buildings in the terrace have changed considerably since then (see listing for 73-99 (odd nos) High Street).
