Statement of Interest

88 Cornhill Road was probably designed by Cameron and Watts for Cameron, suggesting that the monogram above the door is his. They were clearly influenced by the architecture of Pirie and Clyne. The horseshoe doorway, and panelled door with stained glass panels, combined with the scrolled gatepiers and skewputts are all features frequently used by them, seen at their best in Hamilton Place (see separate listings).
