A wee update on this place - it's still got some lovely features inside, but it's in a bit of a mess:

The attic still has some reminders of shipbuilding:

And even some plans and paperwork:

Tenuously related titbits for coincidence connoisseurs:

D&W Henderson were the brothers David and William Henderson who bought the Tod & Macgregor shipyard in 1872. Before that they were 'ship and commission agents' with an office in St Enoch Square. They were pioneering first residents in the newly built Walmer Crescent, living in main door flats at opposite ends from 1859 with young families and three servants each. David stayed till about 1859, then moved to Newton Terrace (Sauchiehall St / Mitchell area) and William had moved to Victoria Crescent, Dowanhill by 1867 (all this courtesy of PO Directories and 1861 census). Wonder if it was clear even by then that the west end was the place to be and Walmer Crescent - er - wasn't?

There were two other Henderson brothers, John and Thomas, who owned the Anchor Line shipping company.

Anyway, moving on a decade or so, the architect Edward Hay, of Bruce and Hay, lived in one of the upstairs flats at Walmer Crescent from 1882 till 1904. According to the Scottish architects website, Mr Hay was married in 1882 (so Walmer Crescent was a nice home for the newlyweds) by the minister of the Montrose St Evangelical Church - who was one Fergus Ferguson, who also moved into the newly built Walmer Crescent in 1858 and stayed till 1874.

Hmmm, grounds for a Walmer Crescent Connection investigation, or just like that thing about how many (or few) people you need in a room before there's an even chance two of them have the same birthday?

Interesting little place and I hope it gets saved in one form or another. Nice to see the documents archived too.
