Appraisal

Although destroyed during the 1916 Rising, this building was subsequently reconstructed under the direction and design of E. Bradbury. With its unusual former corner sited entrance bay, it is a key building in the streetscape, situated at a prominent junction between Moore Street and Henry Street. Built in the style of late nineteenth-century commercial buildings, its fa├žade is articulated and enhanced by timber sash windows and by granite detailing to the walls and window surrounds.
