Half-glazed door in moulded surround to centre left, with different storey

centre left. The facade treatment of pilaster and cornice runs over the
adjacent number 1 + 3 Royal Road, and is taken from the decorative motifs
of the rest of Royal Road (laid out 1827-36), and disguises the earlier
construction of these buildings, possibly still the 1802 structures built
for James Townley. See Busson 108-9.
