Gable of Mackay's Buildings on the Back Road?
Added by Steven Heddle on 24 August 2009
Gable end of Mackays buildings Junction Rd. At one time this was Campbell's Glass and China shop

Quite right - Ivydean, the ground floor of which was the shop of Mackay's Furniture Stores. Until the building was converted to flats in the 1980s there were stone skews on the gable with a stone finial at the peak. I think "W H" must stand for William Hutchison, the merchant who built it.
