LVIII.–LXIII.—Nos. 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 AND 22 CURTAIN ROAD.
Condition of repair.
In the Council's collection are:
The freehold is a portion of the Stainton estate.
No. 12 is a three-storey brick building, the ground floor of which, used
as a shop, has an interesting bay window of small projection. Nos. 14 to 22
comprise a terrace of four-storey premises and basements. The fronts are
in red brick with plain bands cemented over at first, second and third-floor
levels. The windows have frames flush with the wall and gauged brick
arches over, while the roofs are tiled. The interiors generally have square
deal panelling, but have been considerably altered to permit of their being
used as workrooms. No. 14 has, on the ground floor, a carved mantelpiece
having a frieze enriched with openwork design, the mouldings over which
are, unfortunately, missing. The same room has a moulded chair rail
(Plate 86). No. 16 has a deal pedimented door-head supported on shaped
brackets, over a semicircular fanlight (Plate 86), and Nos. 14 and 18 shew
signs of similar treatment.
