A sylish row of six spacious double-fronted houses built in the 1870s. They were superior residences for professional persons (surgeons, lawyers, shipowners etc) but all became private hotels in the 1920s. After World War Two, Nos. 1 and 2 became regional offices for the Ministry of Health and other government agencies. No. 3 became a commercial college. Nos. 4 and 5 were a hotel. No. 6 was a nurses' home. Today the buildings are mostly offices and an aparthotel.
