(SAA&B Jun 1904:161 ill)

Possibly built in 1904 despite date on building. The architect was A De Witt. The front is steel framed, a pretty little survivor of the turn of century vogue for terracotta.

(Rennie 1978:52)

The building housed an art gallery for several years which had the name 34Long Art Gallery.
