Notes:      ground floor

Part of a block. Other parts: 26 Union Street     28 Union Street     30 Union Street     32 Union Street     36 Union Street     

Using the information here, it is impossible to be certain who lived in each property or part of the building after 1940 and before 1881. Other properties involved : 26 Union Street     36 Union Street      One possible interpretation is given below.

 

Commentary

A difficult block to allocate precisely. Ground floor had 2 houses of 2 rooms each; middle floor had one of 2 rooms and one of 3 rooms; top floor had one of 2 rooms and one of 3 rooms. Allocation of inhabitants is consistent from 1940 back to 1881 and is helped by directory entries, but uncertainties exist both before and after these dates. The 1964 renumbering is a complete mix-up.
