Statement of Interest

In poor repair. A distinctive work by C J McNair with an interesting Egyptian-influenced cornice. A rare survivor in an area which has changed dramatically within the last 50 years. Built for Messrs Sloan & Co of Bridge Street as an extension to their premises at 37-45 Bridge Street (see separate list description). It is not clear if the buildings are (or were) linked to each other. A tenement was demolished to make way for this building.
