Appraisal

This building's steeply pitched roof is suggestive of an early date, and together with the adjoining building, is a significant early structure in this historic street. Shandon Street was traditionally a main thoroughfare linking the city with the rural hinterland to the north. Its position, scale and steeply pitched roof make it a formidable presence in the urban landscape.
