This typical Aberdeen tenement, situated on a principal city centre street has undergone some alteration at ground level, but retains a remarkably fine example of the work of local architectural practice Jenkins & Marr who were based at 16 Bridge Street in Aberdeen. By 1921 Harbourne Maclennan was the sole partner of Jenkins and Marr, having retained the practice name.
