Statement of Interest

Attribution to Peddie and Walker Todd is probably because of the large number of local authority houses designed by them in East Lothian in the 1920s, bearing similar details. The mansard element is unusual. The houses are built on the site of former cattle and implement sheds, demolished for the purpose.
