Grid ref:
Notes: An advertisement in the Caledonian Mercury 20 January 1827 states 'warehouse to be let' which consisted of four rooms in the uppermost part of the new tenement built on the site of the Old Ship Bank fronting Argyll Street with two windows to Glassford Street'. Applications were to be made to John Brash. Brash does not appear to have acted as an agent for letting other properties. He probably therefore built the tenement himself.
