Appraisal

Built as a pair with the adjoining structure, this building retains notable features, such as the decorative render window surrounds and timber sliding sash windows. Its scale, proportions and massing combine to present a positive contribution to the streetscape. The shopfront is an excellent example of the high design and quality of nineteenth century craftsmanship.
