Statement of Interest

Designed in conjunction with 51-53 Virginia Street and Virginia Court known collectively as Virginia Buildings. (see separate listings). These buildings are important examples of a unified street and court complex and are the best remaining examples of their type and period. Early sign writing painted on to the ashlar from the 1820s survives in the doorway of No 37, including signage for the legal practice of C D Donald and Sons.
