Labour exchange. 1931. Brick with Portland dressings, tiled
hipped roof. Wedge-shaped single-depth plan. Neo-Georgian
2 storeys. Banded rustication below a moulded plat band,
first-floor sill and second-floor string; brick frieze and a
deep cornice below the parapet. The entrance in the short
corner elevation is set back within a tall semicircular-arched
bay, the doorway has a moulded architrave with 5 large,
stepped, nodding voussoirs to an 8-panel 2-leaf door; above
the sill band is a lunette with glazing bars. 2 curved Pennant
steps up to the front of the archway, with small windows
either side above large stone plinths with cyma moulded tops.
The main Nelson Street elevation to the right has 12
semicircular-arched openings with rusticated voussoirs and
keys up to the band; 4 doorways, separated by pairs of
windows, have moulded stone entablatures, pilaster jambs and
semicircular overlight, 2-leaf doors with moulded panels.
Flat-arched first-floor windows and small attic windows
(reglazed 1992), separated by 2-storey semicircular-arched
recesses over the doorways with volute keys, first-floor
balconies and matching windows with pilaster jambs, fluted
entablatures with paterae and ashlar batswing fans above.
INTERIOR: glazed screen and door to entrance hall which has
semicircular arches either side and an open-well stair with
twisted steel balusters and a curtail step; remodelled offices
behind. An interesting use of an oddly-shaped site, with an
imposing entrance and good stone details, and a good example
in the inter-war classical tradition.
