Appraisal

While the size and scale of this building and the subtlety of the diminishing windows provide a positive contribution to the streetscape, its shop fronts are perhaps its most notable feature. Ornate consoles and decorative dentillated course are subtle details that are rarely copied in pastiche shop fronts.
