There was no basement at the off-licence [41 James Street], nor apparently at the houses to the west, now a taxi office, leading to the suspicion that this section of James Street may have been originally occupied by ‘weaver’ type houses which, unlike most other brick built houses of the period, characteristically didn’t have cellars.

Cork Street was apparently developed this way, with weaver-type houses interspersed with Billys and the odd vernacular structure.
