Extant Building

1, Kings Street, includes 2, Fowler Street, dating from 1902, by J.H. Morton, architect. It is an ashlar building of three storeys and 7 bays, and forms a quadrant plan linking King Street to Fowler Street. The ground floor is heavily rusticated above a high plain plinth. The windows, central entrance and door from Fowler Street have semi-circular hooded openings with scrolled keystones. The first floor openings have architraves and alternating triangular and segmental pediments. There is a continuous cill band and cast iron balconies. The second floor windows have moulded architraves. All crowned by an entablature with modillion cornice and a balustraded parapet. Each end bay is broken forward to form a pavilion. Ionic pilasters rising above the ground floor support open pediments. This is a good example of early 20th century "Bankers Classical" style standing in a prominent position.LISTED GRADE 2
