Both facades, articulated by pilasters panelled at parapet level, are spanned by a coped and panelled parapet, wide cornice, plain frieze, second-floor platband and first-floor sill string course forming a ground-floor cornice over the shop fronts. Windows have raised surrounds, bracketed sills, rounded upper corners to flat arches and horizontal glazing bars to 2/2-pane sashes varying from one, two or three lights. First-floor windows have cornices on consoles. Some banded rustication to ground floor remains notably to No.62 at the corner and to the left return which has a semicircular and a segmental arch with marked rusticated voussoirs toward the rear. 20th century shop fronts except No.58 which is a very fine example of a circa 1900 shop front (originally a chemist's); glazed door to the right-of-centre has ornamental sand-blasted panel and notice which reads, 'PRESCRIPTIONS ACCURATELY DISPENSED', a low carved raised-and-fielded panel to the base, curved and carved top, lintel and pediment set in the overlight. Plate glass windows have carved tops to turned colonettes and elaborate overlights with cut-glass stars to circular panes, those flanking the set-back door are curved inward. INTERIOR: No.58 has mosaic floor, moulded cornice and exceptionally complete series of original fittings, principally pedimented display cabinets to rear and side walls. The entrance to No.54 has a late 19th century shop front and entrance with mosaic floor, original name removed. 19th century interior has full-height tongue-and-groove panelling and a panelled ceiling.
