Unspecified work for Alfred Joseland, Wine Merchant and Brewer (Messrs Joseland), of 7 Foregate Street.
MESSRS. JOSELAND AND SONS’ BREWERY, &c Having lately described two new breweries at present in full operation in this city, it now becomes our pleasing task to give a sketch of a third establishment, which the old firm of George Joseland and Sons have recently completed.
… While we are upon this subject, we may notice as an agreeable and elegant feature in our recent street improvements, the premises of this well-known firm at No. 7, Foregate-street, which have undergone a thorough alteration, adding greatly to the appearance of the street. The front has been taken out, excepting the lower part; first-floor windows have moulded Bath stone dressings with moulded and sunk consoles under caps; carved corbels are inserted under the sills to support Bath stone flower boxes, which are effectively relieved by inlays of enamelled glazed tiles manufactured by Minton, Hollins and Co.; the panels under flower boxes are beautifully enriched with carvings of the vine and hop, in the centre of which are introduced monograms. The second-floor window dressings consist of moulded Bath stone and trusses under sills; above these, is a bold and handsome stone cornice, with sunk and moulded panels, between which are consoles of neat design. The cornice is stopped at either end by two massive corbels, having carved spandrils, under each of which moulded heads and rectangular down pipes to convey water from the gutter over cornice. … The whole of the works have been ably carried out by Messrs. Wood and Sons (with the exception of the carving which was executed by Mr. Forsyth from the designs and under the superintendence of Mr. Ernest A. Day, architect, of this city).
