41 and 43 The Green follows the classical Aberdeen tradition with its simple careful proportions. It is an unusual survivor in this area and it adds significantly to the streetscape of this former market place.
The Green is one of the oldest areas in Aberdeen. It was part of the original entrance way into the city of Aberdeen and became celebrated from the sixteenth century as an open-air market venue. The area became increasingly built up in the nineteenth century with rising numbers of residents, traders and industries. With the formation and building up of Union Street to the North during the nineteenth century, the importance of The Green diminished. It was no longer part of the entrance way into the city and the tall buildings of Union Street had rear entrances at the level of The Green and their height overshadowed the area. This building is typical of the early nineteenth century buildings that were established here.
