Standing above the parapet height of the street, this attractive building makes a strong impression on the streetscape. Red brick detailing enlivens the façade and is testament to the skill of builders and brick-workers at this time. It was associated with the adjacent fruit and vegetable wholesale market, which was constructed in the latter decades of the nineteenth century to serve traders in the city, and is therefore of some contextual importance.
