Robinson's Warehouse

Bristol <br>Robinson's Warehouse <br>Bathurst Basin

1874 by W.B. Gingell

The former warehouse of Robinson's Oil Seed Manufactory. A lively example of the Bristol Byzantine style. Gaudy yellow and red brick, similar but not identical, unified by continuous cornice and stringcourses. Venetian ogee window heads in the warehouse building set in Moorish arches of pointed horseshoe form.
