Flat roof with red brick chimneystacks to east party wall behind rebuilt red brick parapet wall with masonry coping.

Appraisal

This building forms the end of a terrace lining the north side of Talbot Street, which was laid out c.1840 following the sale of Tyrone House. Although it has been considerably altered by the insertion of a recent shopfront, much of the original form and fabric to the upper floors has been retained, with historic features such as timber sliding sash windows adding to the architectural significance of the building.
