Appraisal

A pharmacy since 1911 and forming a pair with 16003194, this property is an important feature in the streetscape. The continuous cornice and roofline and similar detailed shopfronts give it a pleasingly coherent form, notwithstanding the different uses and treatments. The shopfront has the carved scrolled foliate consoles which are typical features of Wicklow town.
