Winter's from Royal Oak Yard
The former Grade II listed shop building on Little Underbank was constructed in the late 19th century, remodelled c.1904 and in c.1990. The upper floors are decorated with three semi-circular headed niches, each with a pedimented canopy, hanging bell and a shaped plinth supporting a painted figure, to the left a soldier, to the centre Father Time SJ8990 : Old Father Time with scythe and bell with scythe, and to the right a sailor, each connected to the bell. A projecting illuminated square clock-face hangs above the doorway.

Jacob Winter, a successful Jewish businessman, established a watch and clock repair business at 23 Little Underbank in c.1890, expanding into No.25 in the early 1900s, when the frontage was remodelled. The shop front included a patent mechanism to lower the entire display into the basement, for security. The clock SJ8990 : Winter's Clock has been restored and re-built on several occasions due to traffic damage. The jewellers closed in the 1980s and has since been in use as a bar.
