WATERLOO STREET 1. 5121 (south side) No 32 ST 3261 NW 10/59 4.5.79 (Mercury Printing Offices) II GV 2. 1885, by Hans Price. Exuberant Dutch Baroque style with a dash of Spanish influence in the tower. Bath stone with modern weatherproofing. Two bays, the right hand one 3½ storeys, forming a break with shaped gable and multiple pilaster-work, the left hand one being glazed 2 storey quadrant with mullion and transom windows linking the Waterloo Street frontage with the street line of The Boulevard. This is emphasised by a four-staged tower with shaped gabling, corbelled pilasters and an arcaded loggia. Ornament includes balustraded parapet to quadrant, carved keystones to second floor of right hand bay, herm-pilasters, a gable tip oculus and shell hood, and a wide- arched entrance with carved material in spandrels. This building is in an important position and has a special silhouette which gives it extra value.
