Notes: See separate entry for St Katherine's Lodge, 14 The Scores, also by Jesse Hall - it appears The Scores must have been renumbered.

The location of the workshop and cycle shed of 1912 is not given in the Gillespie & Scott lists, but since the client was William Mair and the entry is adjacent to that for the gymnasium at Clifton Bank, it is here assumed that the workshop and cycle shed were at the same location.
