Belmont Street
This photograph shows the old corner of Belmont Street and Gaelic Lane.

The building on the far left is the Gaelic Free Church. It was opened for worship on 30th August 1795 and in time gave its name to the lane. It was used for the services of Aberdeen's Gaelic congregation until 1882. The congregation moved and the building was sold to Messers G. and W. Fraser, printers, who owned adjoining premises. They replaced the old church frontage with the more business like facade that can be seen in this photograph. See the entry for St. Columba United Free Church in Alexander Gammie's Churches of Aberdeen (1909) for more details.

A sign for George Cowie, a hairdressers, is prominently visible at number 4 around the corner on Belmont Street.
