Summary

Description
English: Canterbury, England. For a small commercial building this one is rare in the degree that it reveals its architectural history. The ground floor is probably medieval and may be as early as 13th century but its street-front is late Victorian and 20th century with 19th and 20th Century glass. The abutting first floor containing Queen Elizabeth I's chamber is dated 1573 and retains most of its original oak timbering, Tudor style window openings with depressed arches and brick infill. Some of the glass is probably Tudor. The jutting bay windows appear to date from about 1670. The glass is almost entirely original. The upper floor with its elaborate pargetting of "vintaging putti" (cherubs and grapevines) also dates from the late 1600s and has Georgian sash windows.
