Appraisal

The purpose-built bank makes a positive addition to the streetscape, due to the scale and form of the building. Notable architectural features of the building include the projecting bow, segmental-arched windows and pedimented parapet. The decorative render detail articulates and enhances the fa├žade, and was clearly executed by skilled craftsmen. The building retains many interesting features and materials, such as the timber sash windows and carved limestone details.
