Statement of significance:

Set of commercial buildings of which the bakery is only one in the block between The Avenue, Old South Head Road and William Street. Soos Bakery and the shop at 439 Old South Head Road (cnr William Street) are separated by a large and very overgrown shed. An SCC substation runs along the rear from William Street to The Avenue. The whole complex is a small island of light industry in a sea of suburban residences. Such parts of the structures as can be seen suggest an early 20th century date. The area deserves further investigation and could have archaeological potential.
