Statement of Interest

The warehouse was constructed in conjunction with a single storey printing shed (still largely extant) behind which connected it to No 46 Constitution Street (listed separately). The premises at Constitution Street were given a new elaborate red sandstone shopfront at the same time. The building has recently been converted to offices.
