Full Description

Site recorded from the 2013 RCAHMS download. <1>

2 storey and attic corner terrace building. 2 bays (including entrance) to Saltoun Street and 2 to Williamson Street. Double leaf entrance doors with rectangular fanlight over. Post box inserted to the right of the entrance.
The building can be seen in a photograph, estimated to have been taken in the 1880s, held in the Johnston Collection. It appears to have signage over the Saltoun Street entrance, suggesting it was in use as a shop at that time - the double leaf entrance doors would also likely be used in a commercial premises. <2>
