No 19 Belmont Street was the former showroom of James Bannochie - 'Plasterers, tile fixers, marble and cement workers, chimney pieces, grate and range makers' and contains a remarkable selection of the type of plaster work which was fashionable in the second half of the 19th century. Customers would have been able to specify their commission and examine the workmanship from the examples displayed in Bannochie's premises. The basement floor had '34 panels representing different terrazzo patterns' at time of original listing in 1984. It is understood by the present occupiers that these are now hidden under the more recent laminate and carpeted flooring.
