*Open in New Window
Stockwell Street

This engraving depicts a view from c 1820 of buildings on Stockwell Street opposite Buchanan Court which was named after James Buchanan, one of the partners in the West Indies merchants Dennistoun, Buchanan & Co

The sign above the open door to the left of the image reads "Sinclar Evan." The door in the centre has a sign advertising "Penny Ales" and is probably the entrance to a tavern. The sign above the door of the building on the right identifies the home or premises of Andrew Hill. Note the crow-stepped gables, the wall-mounted street lamp and the small-paned windows on the buildings.
