Statement of Interest

In October 1927, Andrew Porter obtained planning permission to alter licensed premises and dwelling houses on the corner of Dysart Road and St Clair Street presumably to interior and rear. Again altered and extended 1935-6 by A B Rintoul. Simple but effective treatment of corner site.
