Includes: Nos.2 AND 4 ALBION STREET. Shop, offices and workshops. c1875 with c1930 alterations to 1st floor. Possibly by Thomas Ambler. Ashlar and brick. 4 storeys, 1 bay to Boar Lane, curved 1-bay corner and 1+2 bays to left return, (Nos 2 & 4 Albion Street). Late C20 facade to ground floor and 1st-floor sill level. Art Deco style 3-light window to tile-faced 1st floor. 2nd and 3rd floors have original fenestration of paired round-arched and square sashes in architraves with moulded bracketed sills, attached columns and keystones at 1st-floor level; dentilled eaves cornice, blocking course. Left return, ground and 1st floors: centre and right bays as front, with stylised plaques between 1st-floor windows; round-arched entry to rear yard far left is original, with remains of moulded relief bands of leaves and fine 2-leaf gates with bars, wavy pointed dog-bars, lock rail and semicircles. 2nd and 3rd floors: right bay as front; the remainder (Nos 2 & 4 Albion Street) is plain, with 4-pane sashes (one blind), stone sills, pilaster with carved kneeler far left, paired gutter brackets. INTERIOR: not inspected. HISTORICAL NOTE: Boar Lane was rebuilt from 1869 onwards and this site was first listed in the Directory in 1875 as the premises of the Wunzer Sewing Machine Company, the manager, George Elliot Clifford, possibly living on the premises. By 1878 a hosier, boot and shoe dealer and umbrella manufacturer were using the premises and by 1888 they had been taken over by W Whitelock, pianoforte dealer. The directory entries suggest that Nos 58 & 60 (qv) were completed slightly later than their neighbours, the same architect working on both infill blocks; the similarity with other Boar Lane buildings suggests Ambler's work. Included for group value.
