Status: Unexecuted
Grid ref:
The designs for these Municipal Buildings were approved of some time previous to the commencement of the war, but the project was not started owing to financial reasons. Since then the architect has effected some improvements in the scheme. The work. however, cannot be undertaken under present conditions. The architect, Mr J. Graham Fairley, of Abercorn Terrace, Portobello. has shown the picturesque possibilities of Scottish Baronial Architecture for modern municipal purposes. but the projecting clock in the drawing seems to us rather large in its present shape, which could be easily modified in execution.
