And those windows must be an unqualified breach of fire regulations…how would anything bigger than a cat escape?

This building is a fine mid-19th century double-gabled stone warehouse (a Protected Structure) on Anglesea Row, a mews lane behind Capel Street. In a recent refurbishment, its original slender-barred sashes (which should have been repaired & draughtproofed) were replaced with these double-glazed models. They don’t look too bad at a glance, but the detail of the originals has not been copied – the glazing bars are crude & fat and the horns are the Victorian type suited to single-pane sashes. The same shitty sashes have been put into the whole of the corresponding 4-bay Georgian building fronting Capel Street (formerly Forseye & Forseye furniture, now Centra). They look even worse in this location!
