The building is shown in an early 20th century photograph (Reid, above) with Gavin Gibson's butchers to the left and Mrs Ferguson's bakery to the right. The shopfronts had large expanses of plate glass and were canted into the doorways. The proprietors' names were painted onto the frieze above. The photograph also shows the original glazing with the frames painted a dark colour. At present (2003) the building is empty and dilapidated and the shopfronts have been altered in the late 20th century. Roller shutters have been added which detract from the quality of the façade. The building still retains sufficient features however to remain listed, such as the fine ashlar façade, lugged window surrounds and pilastered shopfronts.
