Built for the Salvation Army in 1910. Their Women's Social Work HQ moved here in 1911 from offices at another nearby Salvation Army address, 259 Mare Street. The work run from here included: women's social and slum work, rescue homes and children's aid, all that we now know as 'social work'. Refurbished in 2008 the building is now used as council offices.
