James Cowie was a Wishaw architect who designed several of the large red sandstone tenements on Main Street and many small villas in the surrounding area, none of the latter being of particular note. 206-216 Main Street compares closely to 231-257 Main Street (see separate listing) also by Cowie though of slightly earlier date, 1894. Built as a speculative concern for the Wishaw Co-operative Society. Both buildings are in the monumental Glasgow style of classicism.
