Anglesea Street was largely developed by the mid-eighteenth century and appears on John Rocque’s 1756 map of Dublin. This site was occupied by a house which was amalgamated into the Royal Bank of Ireland, Fosters Place by the time of Griffith’s Primary Valuation and may contain material of early nineteenth-century date. A date plaque proclaims that the façade was rebuilt in 1895, in the Queen Anne Revival style, likely to provide office accommodation following the opening of the Irish Stock Exchange to the north. The richly ornamented façade, enlivened by well-executed Classical detail, is an arresting focal point, the embellished oriel window and shopfront contrasting with the unadorned upper floors. This notable building provides architectural interest to the streetscape.
