Historic Environment Record entry
This building exhibits elaborate decoration and unusual features which are well preserved. It contributes to the streetscape with its articulated rhythm of bays and horizontal banding.
Built around 1902 in a restrained French Renaissance manner.
Originally known as 'Jersey's Fleet Street building'. 
Three-storey with attic. Four bays with curved corner bay to Bath Street, five-bay to Charles Street. Corner entrance. Mansard roof with double and single dormers. Dormers have segmental pediments with scallop shell infill. Parapet balustrade of circles and diamonds rising as arched solid, housing clock, over corner.
Tiles also under first floor window cills. Cornice to each floor, first and ground with swagged frieze. Full height pilasters every second bay (end one with 'tassle' decoration at top). To central pilaster is fixed a 'barley sugar' twisted downpipe with foliate fixings and classically decorated hopper.
