Fantastic detective work gunter! 🙂

What is it with Billies and bizarre 1960s treatments?! And very odd indeed to have a supposedly fashionable and more sophisticated Carolean-style dolls house in the midst of two Billies. What’s going on there? The regular placement of the warehouses might suggest the house was built at the same time, but on the other hand its modern design and slight increase in height suggests it filled the vacant plot at a later date…

The adjoining buildings at the corner with Patrick’s Street also appear to follow the plot divisions, if not quite the bays, of that terrace depicted by Butt. He shows a distinct break in the dormer roofs in the same place as the modern-day division. The seemingly truncated building second from the corner may just retain some early elements…
