Publication Account (1999)

On the edge of the 'new', planned Fishertown, at its western junction with the 'Upper town', Cumming Street was laid out. Nos 1 & 2, 6 & 8 and 10 & 12 Cumming Street figure 23.P all exhibit similar features. All are paired cottages of single-storey design, with attics, which stand gable end onto the street. Although, over the years, some external changes have been made to make each house distinct, such as hading, painting and extensions, they still demonstrate a similarity and cohesion which marks them out as a planned development.
