Alexander Thomson (d 1875), 1875-7, and presumably
completed by his partner, Robert Turnbull, in Thomson's
own style. Finely-detailed 4-storey tenement with main
front to Allison Street, single window bays, return
elevations plainer. Part to left of centre, with
receding wall-planes, perhaps the original design by
Thomson; treatment otherwise simplified. Polished ashlar
with carved detail now mostly stone-cleaned. Wide
pilasters at ground to bays, deep entablature over;
distinctive aedicular openings, top floor windows with
pilastered jambs supporting deep main entablature,
anthemion set in recessed panels between windows;
distinctive glazing, tall lower sahses; wall-head stacks
with acroteria; roofs mainly slated, partly re-roofed
in modern tiles. No 34 Daisy Street has been re-glazed.

Statement of Interest

Plainer tenements on flanks (which in isolation would merit only Category B) are integral, hence their inclusion as part of this item. Change of category from B to A, 5.12.89.
