Additional Information

The proposals are to erect another building to the terrace of properties which had been built in recent years on the western side of Bradford Road.The fact that the address is given as being 'near Hebble Beck' indicates that the area has been recently developed. The new property adjoined Kells House, the property of Mr. J. Hallas to the south. To the north was vacant land. The new building followed the established building line. The somewhat plain elevation to Bradford Road is double fronted with large plate glass windows for the display of furnishings made in the cabinet works at the rear of the property. Steps lead up to the central doorway providing access to the shop. To the right, steps lead down to a passage at basement level providing access to the back door yard and single storey cabinet works.

The rooms in the plans are not named. There are three rooms in the basement, three on the ground floor; three in the chamber floor and one in the attic, which is lit by roof lights.

Neighbours in the terrace include Mr. Bates; Mr. J. S. Oddy at Rocklands House; Mr. C. Nicholson at Stafford House and Mr. Hallas at Kells House.

There is a privy / ash pit in the yard to the rear.
