Statement of Interest

The original building (Nos 15 and 17) was built for William Dick (1793-1866), founder of the Dick Veterinary College, Edinburgh, and passed in 1869 to his daughter Mary.

Reinstatement of traditional glazing at Nos 19 and 21 is desirable for such an important building on this prominent site.
