SOUTHWARK TQ3280 TOOLEY STREET 636-1/2/774 (North side) 13/05/71 Nos.47 AND 49 GV II Warehouse, now offices. 1860s, restored and interior rebuilt late C20. By W Snooke and H Stock. Yellow brick with stucco and artificial stone dressings, C20 roof extensions above cornice. EXTERIOR: 4 storeys (ground floor including recent mezzanine level) and attic, 3 bays. Altered ground floor has tall, segmental-headed openings with keystones now filled in at top to form mezzanine level, open below as walkway. Stucco banded rustication to this level. Slightly recessed rounded corner angles. Upper 3 floors articulated by colossal round-arched recesses with architraves and keystones supporting cornice and resting on blocking course above cornice to ground floor; moulded string at spring. 1st- and 2nd-floor segmental-headed windows in inner, segmental-arched recess. 3rd floor round-headed windows in round-arched recesses have moulded sills inside recesses continuing as plain band outside. Similarly treated 5-bay returns. HISTORICAL NOTE: the last remaining warehouse building of former Cotton's Wharf. Cotton's was almost entirely destroyed in the fire of Tooley Street (1861) and was immediately rebuilt. It was converted into a coldstore in the 1880s by the proprietors of adjacent Hay's Wharf. Late C20 buildings have replaced the other buildings on the site. INTERIOR: not inspected. Has group value with the adjacent Hay's Wharf buildings to the east.
