Part of a previously single property. Other parts: 13 Union Street     

 

Commentary

A simple set of properties which has been complicated by internal divisions and multiple letting. Originally 3 properties: the shop (9) on south; cottage (11) - Smith then McNaughton - in middle; cottage (15) - Gibb - on north. (15) was sometimes let as 2 properties, but from 1896 on it has always been 2. (11) was split into 2 c.1897, initially as 2 houses, but then one of them was used as a store for the shop. All properties were bought by Mackay c.1912 since when it has been impossible to sort out the internal divisions of properties. (13) has been created out of varying parts of (11) and (15). The part used as a store for the shop has reverted to being part of either (11) or (13).
