Old photographs show a full width Victorian shopfront with fine iron railing above, in a pattern of scrolled circles. The present shopfronts are later C20 inserted for the Provincial Assurance Co.

Upper floors have stucco quoins, hornless 12-pane sash windows to two main floors, and smaller 9-pane sashes to top floor, all in moulded architraves with sill brackets. The main floors also have cornices on consoles above, the cornices linked to the sills above by shallow raised stucco feature. Lion-mask keystones to upper windows. Modern shop fronts with beige marble facing to piers, inscribed Provincial House.
