More Info →Bryant Building, 201-207 Cuba Street

This building was erected in three stages - 1905, 1911 and 1914. The architect for the first two shops is likely to have been Frederick de Jersey Clere (or probably his son Edmund) the architect for the third shop. The contractor for the first two shops (at least) was bricklayer and contractor, Ike Fake. The owner was Frederick Bryant, a butcher, who owned and developed a substantial amount of property around the town. The 1905 shop was occupied by Walter Thomas Cotton, a baker and confectioner, who named it the ‘Royal Café’. By 1911, William Everitt, was there, moving in 1914 to the newly built shop. By 1920, Boniface Bros. operated their ‘Balmoral Tea and Luncheon Rooms’ from it. The bakery remained until around 1930. By 1990, two of the shops were combined as a cycle shop and later the third shop was added. The upper floor consists of flats.
