Union Street


Albany Buildings is a short terrace of buildings on the east side of Union Street between Albany Court and the Police Station (the Town House) - today Loders butchers and David Keith hairdresser.

This part of Union Street was, before about 1830, a continuation of Wine Street or Grope Lane as it was then called. The northern part of Union Street was built by Peter Daniell after 1830. Watt's map of 1806 shows three houses in the position of Albany Buildings but the present terrace is likely to date from after 1840.
