Boots expanded their shops dramatically in the period 1900-1915 and introduced a black and white Tudor style for shops on prominent sites, probably designed by Treleaven, including 'Venetian' oriel windows, mock timber framing and statues of prominent historic figures.
Michael Vyne Treleaven (1850-1934),
Nottingham architect, was from 1900 in charge of Boots Building and Shop fitting Department. Designed many shops for Sir Jesse Boot (Boots the Chemists) including Winchester, Exeter, and Newcastle.
