Notes:      ground floor

Part of a block. Other parts: 38 Union Street     40 Union Street     42 Union Street     44 Union Street     46 Union Street     

Using the information here, it is impossible to be certain who lived in each property or part of the building after 1925. Other properties involved : 46 Union Street      One possible interpretation is given below.

 

Commentary

A difficult block to allocate precisely. Ground floor had originally a workshop and house, later 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 1925 back to 1889 and is helped by directory entries, but uncertainties exist both before and after these dates. The 1964 renumbering is a complete mix-up.
