Statement of Interest

Alterations to this building since 1980 have been non traditional in form, but an effort has been made to retain the original profile of the Tweeddale Street elevation. This building is therefore important to the streetscape, especially when viewed in context with No 7. Photograph of 1980 shows the pend to the right with a steel lintel, suggesting that the opening replaced a window, and the original symmetry of the facade was then lost.
