Appraisal

This building maintains the parapet height and fenestration arrangement of its neighbours, contributing positively to the streetscape. The warm colours and patina of age evident in the brick contribute positively to the local streetscape. The diminishing window openings are characteristic of the period, creating a pleasingly balanced fa├žade. In 1862 this was the premises of Ryan & Son, military tailors and habit makers.
