Andrews and Pepper. Italianate details, elaborated on top floor. Ashlar faced;
4 tall storeys with rounded corners to Kirkgate and Piece Hall Yard. Six windows
to main fronts and one to each curved corner. Cornice over ground floor shop fronts

flanking strips and carved console brackets to broken entablatures, thin cornices
projecting from second floor sill course. The second floor has segmental arched
windows, similar carved console brackets, broken entablatures, and prominent solid
pediments decorated with incised ornament. The console brackets spring from a

rising up to projecting bracketed eaves cornice. Incised strings carried across
pilasters at second floor pediment level and third floor sill level. These pilasters
flank and articulate the third floor windows as a pilastrade. The third floor

The corners have scroll supported paired, corniced, chimneys linked by sections of

doorways with large console brackets to cornice hoods supporting pilaster casts of
