With the adjacent Nos 22-28 (Even Nos) Alloway Street, also designed by architect Allan Stevenson in 1910 (see separate list description) this prominent block provides the main focal point in Alloway Street, which separates the High Street from Burns Statue Square. Both blocks are of red ashlar and maintain a continuous eaves course, cornice and balustrade. The earlier 30 Alloway Street is noticeable for its use of heavy castellated detail and canted window openings, both common late 19th century work. Nos 22-8 Alloway Street displays the lighter work of the early 20th century, with its iron balconies and plaques, along with the highly decorative composite capitals. Interior remodelled by Stevenson and Ferguson, 1956.
