Notes: “BROOMBUSH,” LOCKERBIE - This was originally a common square house, with five windows and a door. Twenty years ago two oriels and a porch were added of a design somewhat out of keeping with the original building, and the present design had to embrace both these oriels and the porch. The former have been somewhat modified in the parapets, while the porch has been carried up to the second story in the form of a circular window for tho boudoir. With tho exception of these windows and porch, the whole of the rest of the buildings as shown are new. The walls are of squared red broken rubble with polished dressings, and the roofs are covered with Westmoreland green slates. The architect is Mr F J C Carruthers, 35, Baccleuch Street, Dumfries [Building News 26 August 1904 p286]
