“This building was erected to take the place of an interesting old house, which still remains in the Tear. The materials used are rubble stone walling, with Doulting stone dressings in the ground floor, the upper story being in cement, finished with a coarse surface. The roofs are covered with hand-made red tiles. The drawing reproduced was shown at the Royal Academy this year. Mr. Henry T. Hare, F.R.I.B.A., was the architect.” Published in The Building News, December 30 1898.
