NS3979 : Millburn Mews

taken 9 years ago, near to Bonhill, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Millburn Mews
Millburn Mews
The name "Mews" often suggests the former presence of stables in an area. However, this building, Millburn Mews (122 Leven Street), was previously the local Buroo (cf. NS3274 : Former Dept. of Employment Office); it has since been converted into housing.

In this photograph, two white doors are visible on the front of the building; above the door on the right, the date 1936 appears, along with the royal cipher of Edward VIII: NS3979 : Millburn Mews - Royal cipher of Edward VIII.

See NS3979 : Millburn Mews for another view of the building, and NS3979 : Construction at Riverside for a later development nearby.
Millburn Mews
A former labour exchange building, converted to housing. Such buildings often bear a royal cipher: in this case, it is the uncommon "E VIII R", which corresponds to the brief reign of Edward VIII in 1936.
