  • Exterior features include curved glass, metalframed windows and flat roof. The building was constructed by Carter & Peace in 1940 and commissioned by a local merchant called Mace and his accountant, Wardlaw, who occupied offices in the building. Long term tenants include the Charles Davis store and Guy Jones Furnishings.
  • The building was modified in 1969 under the direction of Philp, Lighton, Floyd & Beattie, and it is likely that Colin Philp was the original architect.
