II

Labour exchange. 1931. Brick with Portland dressings, tiled hipped roof. Wedge-shaped single-depth plan. Neo-Georgian style. 2 storeys. Banded rustication below a moulded plat band, first-floor sill and second-floor string; brick frieze and a deep cornice below the parapet. The entrance in the short corner elevation is set back within a tall semicircular-arched bay, the doorway has a moulded architrave with 5 large, stepped, nodding voussoirs to an 8-panel 2-leaf door; above the sill band is a lunette with glazing bars. 2 curved Pennant steps up to the front of the archway, with small windows either side above large stone plinths with cyma moulded tops. The main Nelson Street elevation to the right has 12 semicircular-arched openings with rusticated voussoirs and keys up to the band; 4 doorways, separated by pairs of windows, have moulded stone entablatures, pilaster jambs and semicircular overlight, 2-leaf doors with moulded panels. Flat-arched first-floor windows and small attic windows (reglazed 1992), separated by 2-storey semicircular-arched recesses over the doorways with volute keys, first-floor balconies and matching windows with pilaster jambs, fluted entablatures with paterae and ashlar batswing fans above. INTERIOR: glazed screen and door to entrance hall which has semicircular arches either side and an open-well stair with twisted steel balusters and a curtail step; remodelled offices behind. An interesting use of an oddly-shaped site, with an imposing entrance and good stone details, and a good example in the inter-war classical tradition.
