Statement of Interest

A-Group with 1-23 Albert Street, 2-18 Albert Street, 1-34 Albert Terrace and 1 Prince Arthur Street, 2-16 Albyn Place, 31-55 Carden Place and 2 and 4 Prince Arthur Street, 1-6 Rubislaw Place and 21 and 23 Waverley Place, 17 Victoria Street, 19 Victoria Street, 21-59 Victoria Street and 181 Skene Street, 18-28 Victoria Street and 2, 6, 10 and 16 Waverley Place and 30-56 Victoria Street (see separate listings). Victoria Street was laid out by Archibald Simpson for James Skene of Rubislaw, as part of the feuing plan for the Rubislaw Estate. It is noted by Chapman and Riley as being an area "where buildings present features of special charm" (p149). The street design is unusual, in that there are 2-storey buildings on the E side and single storey and attic buildings on the W, this idea is repeated at Albert Street (see separate listings). The terraces are of simple traditional design, comprising rubble walls with finely finished dressings and canted dormers. Ferryhill Place also includes houses of similar design (see separate listings).
