Airlie Terrace faced the River, and looked south - it was rather more

My first home was 21 Airlie Place, at the top right hand corner of the square,
and garden area. We lived there from around '23 - '30 , I suppose one would
call these middle class apartments, but technically they were tenements, with
We must have had three bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and bathroom, all quite
comfortable and moderately roomy. I guess they were three or four storey
No idea what the rents were like, our lot were quite static. The Terrace rents
would have been higher than the Place rents I would guess. Airlie House was
on a large block , adjacent to the Perth Road, and opposite a garden over the

lived there before her marriage!
