This building was the frontpiece of James Dunbar's Aerated Water Manufactory. It contained offices for the works and a house. The machine house (demolished), which had been built slightly earlier, was to the rear of the plot on Maryfield. A smaller 2-storey building by Sutherland and Walker was originally intended for this site, and there are plans for it in the Dean of Guild dated 23 February 1877. These plans were not implemented, and were evidently replaced by the present building, which is a storey higher. This block of land was originally called Maryfield, after Maryfield House which stood next door, and the address given on the Post Office Directory is 14 Maryfield.
Statutory Address updated 2018. Previously listed as 8 -10 (Even Numbers) Easter Road
