Statement of Interest

No 34 Wallace Street is akin to works by H E Clifford suggesting that he may have been the architect. The house stands prominently in the burgh, with single storey properties either side. The 2nd edition OS map shows the property set back from the road, unlike its neighbours, evidently replacing an earlier house flush with the road, like its neighbours, as shown on the 1st edition OS map.
