Appraisal

A prominently sited building that was part of a significant complex of brewery buildings which occupied the block bounded by Ardee Street to the west, Brabazon Row to the east, Newmarket to the south and Cork Street to the north. In the mid-nineteenth century the complex was valued at £400 and the firm survived into the twentieth century as Watkins, Jameson & Pimm. This building was constructed during the nineteenth century for the manufacture and storage of materials associated with the brewery. Its grey limestone and red brick add colour and textural interesting to the streetscape.
