Union Street
Towards the middle of the picture can be seen the distinctive square tower of John Smith's West St Nicholas Kirk House built 1830-31. This drawing is prior to major developments to the junction with Union Terrace, the street on the left of the image. Note the absence of The Northern Assurance Building on the corner. The building, commonly called "The Monkey House", was built in 1885 by architect A. Marshall Mackenzie. Silver City Vault user Ed Fowler identifies the building then at this location, on the left of the artwork, as the townhouse of the Lumdens of Belhelvie.
