Appraisal

Set on a narrow laneway, leading to the Old English Market, this building is an interesting addition to the architectural heritage of the city. Though it is difficult to see in this confined location, the round-headed entrance is an immediately noticeable feature. The decorative detail of the consoles and gate were clearly executed by skilled craftsmen and add artistic interest to the building.
