A red brick and stone building designed by F G Cotman, an Ipswich architect,
in 1889, in a free Jacobean style. It makes an interesting example of late

and Post Office on the South side of Cornhill makes an interesting group of late
C19 civic buildings. 3 storeys and attics. The windows are double-hung
sashes without glazing bars, with round headed arches with ornamental
hood moulds. There are 2 stone oriel bay windows, one at the West end
on the 2nd storey and one rising through the 1st and 2nd storeys. Some
of the windows have stone orders and there is an arcaded window range
on the 2nd storey. The west end has a balustraded parapet. The dormer
windows have "Dutch' gables with ornamental stone scroll work and pinnacles.
The ground storey was broken through in 1930 to form Lloyds Avenue and
there is a Tuscan arcade with modillion cornice, a wide central traffic
opening and flanking semi-circular arched pedestrian openings with engaged
eo1ulans, the 1st storey windows above the opening are double-hung sashes
with glazing bars, in stone architraves. Roof tiled.
