27 St David Street, Fitzroy (The Rainbow Hotel)

“A typical Edwardian building in which the main body of the walls was brick and where the window and door dressings, the broad bands at each floor level and parapet were plastered in flat panes and painted cream. The wide semi-circular arches enclosing large half round windows was hallmark of the ordinary Edwardian architecture, as was the overall grid of cream paint with rectangular panels of red brickwork in between. The glazed vitreous tiles were also contemporary.” (Hotels in Fitzroy up to 1906, Nicola A Piccola, 1971).
