Period: 1880

Description: Site of modern paraffin store.

The site was formerly occupied in the later 19th century by a commercial paraffin store, and is mentioned in trade directories of the time. The store occupied the site of 25 Hope Street, whilst its owner lived on the site of No 23.

The site is now occupied by two dwellings of possibly Edwardian date, which are clearly more recent than their neighbours.

The pavement surface was historically ridged to enable draught horse to keep their footing.
