Appraisal

Built as one of a pair, this Victorian era shop is recognisable in the streetscape due to the painted advertising to its upper floors. Although partially obscured the older shopfront survives in situ. The building makes an significant contribution to the variety of the streetscape, providing a pleasant example of Victorian architecture in an area largely dominated by Georgian architecture.
