Built in the early 20th century, 4-6 Leeming Street shares architectural similarities with its neighbours, 2, 8 and 10 Leeming Street, which would suggest the same architect was involved in its creation.
The building is of brick with ornamental belt courses — also called string courses — and window dressings. The altered window apertures on the first floor and one on the second floor makes the façade look uneven but characterful.
It was originally three shops, two of which were combined into one unit, the third was recessed to give access to upstairs.
