Appraisal

This is an attractive example of a terraced building, exuberantly decorated in a style characteristic of the late-nineteenth century. The rendered detailing may conceal an earlier structure. The handsome fa├žade makes a valuable contribution to the variety of the street, whilst providing a fine example of a mid twentieth-century shopfront.
