HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Built with timbers from a Spanish Armada galleon?
Is the story true? Well, the answer is that we don't know, but it 'could' be true, and the date of construction certainly fits.
The house was originally twice its current size, but half the building had to be pulled down in 1898 to make way for a link road from Redwell Street so that trams could manage the tight corner around Princes Street.
