The two shopfronts at the centre of the terrace of shops appear to be survivors of an original set of four. They may date from before the Great War, when much of the upper part of High Street was in course of redevelopment, but more probably from c1925. A photograph of one of the shopfronts (no. 174), then belonging to a milliner's shop, appears in a Carnival Magazine of that date.
First floor has oriel window to left and tripartite window to right (flanked by brick pilasters), both with transoms.
One of two shops notable for retention of early C20 shopfronts in high quality materials and featuring craftsmanship of a high standard.
