Built Circa 1926, the architect was Walter Taylor. This brick commercial building, with its decorative façade was placed around the corner from the Graceville Railway Station (1916). Taylor was a prominent architect, who lived at Graceville. He was active in the community, particularly with the Methodist church. He took mostly non-private contracts but the few homes that he designed were in Graceville. He designed a (60 x 30 x 5cm) concrete block for external venneer use. These blocks were made here at his Bulk Store workshop.
