Appraisal

A typical nineteenth century house and shopfront ensemble that is greatly enhanced by an attractive timber shopfront and sliding sash windows. It is an interesting reminder of the scale and form of urban garages before the arrival of the purpose built filling station. The wall mounted air gauge and adjacent fuel pump are typical features of this type, now rarely seen. The building's simple form and attractive shopfront make it a fine historic addition to the streetscape.
