Commentary

James' Square entries are correct back as far as 1885, except that 1, 3, & 5 Queen Street may be wrongly allocated; 5 & 7 Gowrie Street may be wrongly allocated; and 9 & 11 Queen Street may be wrongly allocated. Before that, at the moment, it is impossible to be certain which property is which. There were 6 houses from 1855 to 1878; then more are added in 1881 and 1885; finally 9 & 11 Queen Street were added in 1889. The shop, 1 Gowrie Street, appears in 1878 in place of a 'bakehouse, granary, etc'. Up to that date there were also workshops and a woodyard for James Brown, builder. The 1854 OS map shows buildings on King Street, and narrower buildings on Gowrie Street but only half way up from King Street to Queen Street. Research continues.
