GV II

Pair of attached factory sheds. 1891. Possibly by TR Lysaght. For J Lysaght. Pennant rubble with limestone dressings and corrugated asbestos roof. Open plan rectangular sheds. Romanesque Revival style. Each has 3 storey end gables; 6-window range. Parallel sheds, the NW gable obscured by St Vincent's office (qv): gables have broad pilasters to the sides and centre, blind ground floor, and windows in recessed panels with corbel-tables at the top; weathered sill bands below semicircular-arched windows with glazing bars and linked hoodmoulds, in groups of 3 either side of the central pilaster, and falling in height in the second-storey parallel to the roof. Part of a large Pennant arched entrance to the left of centre. Silverthorne Road elevation has broad pilasters separating groups of 3 arched windows as the front. INTERIOR: Bath stone pillars. HISTORICAL NOTE: TR Lysaght was briefly a partner of WB Gingell, and the sheds share some of Gingell's arcuated industrial style. Originally a galvanising works with a timber-framed roof and massive Bath stone piers with hollow lead-lined cores to protect against the sulphuric acid in the atmosphere.
