Commentary

All ground floor properties (2, 4, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 and 32/34 Robert Street) were built as shops but they lost out to the High Street and many were soon used as houses. There were 2 groups of houses on the two upper floors - 6, 8, 10 & 12 were accessed by a close and 24, 26, 28 & 30 were accessed by another close. (All number refer to 1967 numbering.)
