Part of printing works, now office. 1900-1. By Henry Williams. For Edward Everard. Red Cattybrook brick with red terracotta dressings, roof not visible. Double-depth plan. Romanesque Revival style. 2 storeys and attic; 2-window range. A symmetrical front has deep moulded impost bands, first-floor sill band and crenellated parapet, with the attic set well back with a stepped coping, and a slim octagonal turret with a cupola of fat columns to a dome, fluted frieze and finial to the right. Ground-floor semicircular-arched arcade has taller central doorway, keyed, moulded archivolts with alternate raised voussoirs, and C20 door. Large semicircular-arched first-floor and attic windows, with mullion and transom casements with glazing bars above the transoms. The parapet has gabled end merlons, the right-hand one above a sunken downpipe with a good hopper of fluted bowl gripped by dragon. INTERIOR: largely mid C20; the attic has a braced queen post roof with through purlins. Part of Everard's printing works, of which the entrance facade on Broad Street, Nos 37 & 38, (qv) also survives. A late example of Bristol's arcuated industrial style, with decorative details in terracotta of a type supplied by Barham Bros of Bridgwater.
