Cropped from 1920s Queen's Road Central

Two buildings on Queen’s Road Central starting with no. 35 on the right. Both houses have columns at their front, but different ones and they therefore are easy to distinguish.

35 QRC has two square columns or piers at the corners and two round ones in the middle. They (definitely the centre ones) stand on a short octagonal pier. They all end in a capital. On these three arches are built to support the upper floors.

37 QRC has four square columns or piers. A bit more than half-way up they have a square capital (possibly not the correct term) without any applications, and at the upper end another square capital. On top is a horizontal beam that supports the balcony above.
