This early twentieth-century building built as part of the reconstruction of O'Connell Street after the 1916 Rising. Modestly scaled, this building is enlivened by the crowning cornice, decorative window surrounds and intact shopfront that all contribute to the variety of building types that characterise the O'Connell Street area.
