I once spoke a nieghbour that told me that there were teraced houses right through towards Clynder St and beyond and opposite my house where the tenements are now.
Does anyone have any info on this,,, ive been meaning to post this up for a while now and till a few nights ago i had a dream about this dead end wall that prompted me to post this up.
I hope that all you wonderfuly informed Hg'ers can crack this mystery for me.
Ps:when i sold the house the deeds it said the house was built around the 1880's
Georgian architecture is the name given in most English-speaking countries to the set of architectural styles current between 1720 and 1840. It is eponymous for the British monarchs George I-IV, who reigned in continuous succession from August 1714 to June 1830.
The revived Georgian style that emergeed in Britain at the beginning of the 20th century is usually referred to as Neo-Georgian; the work of Edwin Lutyens includes many examples. Versions of the Neo-Georgian style were commonly used in Britain for certain types of urban architecture until the late 1950s, Bradshaw Gass & Hope's Police Head Quarters in Salford of 1958 being a good example. In both the United States and Britain, the Georgian style is still employed by architects like Quinlan Terry for private residences
I'm sure it said Georgian teraced house on the deeds when i sold the house, then again maybe i'm getting my dates mixed up.

Sunflower wrote:Hi Mori,
I was fascinated by those houses from the first time I saw them, couldn't believe there could be such lovely terraces (with the ones in Copland Road and Ibrox Terrace as well) decaying away in the middle of the crud that is Ibrox today. After a bit I worked out that (of course) the nice bits got there first, then the docks/industry/nasty council flats came swirling up round them. How astonishing that you lived there - what are the houses like inside? Are they as huge as they look?
