2. 1865-69. Apparently, by Eli Milnes. A large 5-storey block of chambers with warehousing to rear. Exceptionally for the "Little Germany" area, the elevations are dressed in boldly carved and broadly conceived Gothic detail. Millstone grit ashlar with finer sandstone dressings and carved ornament. Ten window bays to main block, and slight flanking breaks of 2 bays with steep gables. Sharply modelled plinth capping, sill courses and narrow carved machicolations to eaves. Masonry gablets above with wrought iron work between. Large polished pink granite columns with foliate caps to ground floor; grey granite corner shafts to window bays on first floor. Incised, stencil patterned bands and window arches, the carving on each floor of an individual character. The top floor is treated as a gallery, articulated by polished grey granite shafts. Richly carved tympanum over main doorway.
