Appraisal

The south end of St. Andrew Street was originally called Hog Hill and was laid out on land granted to Thomas Pemberton in 1643. While a number of eighteenth-century buildings survive near the church, much of the street was rebuilt in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This former Georgian townhouse was partly rebuilt in 1916, to the designs of T.J. Cullen (1879-194. The two-storey oriel window is characteristic of early twentieth-century design, and the well-built shopfront adds artistic detailing to the fa├žade.
