Basic Site Details

Name: Terrace of houses, 11-17 Moray Place
City or county: Glasgow
Country: Scotland
Grid ref:
Notes: These houses are possibly by A & G Thomson but the relative unsophistication of the design compared with 1-10 Moray Place makes an attribution to Alexander Thomson himself unlikely; local tradition insists that the first terrace (1-10) in Moray Place was too expensive so Thomson was not permitted to design the subsequent terraces in the Regent Park development.
