A commercial building conforming to the narrow proportions that characterized eighteenth-century development in much of the south city, but having a distinctly Edwardian appearance conferred by the double-height oriel window. The Art Nouveau influenced stained glass upper lights add to its significance. The building contributes to the diversity of the streetscape in the commercial core of the south city.
