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). 13 Victoria Street is rather different in design to the other buildings on the street. It is a modification of the original design, with canted windows and gableted 1st floor window breaking the eaves, and taller more elaborate stacks.
