This bluestone warehouse, constructed in 1862 for Holmes White & Co. SUBSTANTIALLY INTACT
appears to have been designed by Architect, Charles Webb. A parapet has been added to the original facade altering the balanced proportion of the original elevation. The interior, consisting of a basement and two upper floors, is substantially intact, and provides an excellent example of timber warehouse construction. On the ground floor, massive square timber columns and brackets carry the floor structure. Bull nose stone corbels support the beams at the wall.
This warehouse is a very pleasing two storied rusticated building.
It is in good condition and is relatively intact. Unlike Pratt's warehouse, it is not detached, but provides an important infill building to Lydiard Street. The intact external detailing and excellent internal timber construction combine to make this a building of importance.
It provides a strong streetscape element.
