Springbank Terrace (North Side) (C) Bill Harrison - Geograph - 3275889.jpg
Springbank Terrace (North Side) (C) Bill Harrison
Springbank Terrace (also the A93) has an interesting asymmetry with the terrace on the north side (pictured) having large front gardens/parking areas, whereas the similar terrace on the south side of the street faces right onto the pavement. Part of Archibald Simpson's planned developments from ca. 1820s. The whole street is C-listed (downgraded from B): <a title='http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/sc-20510-1-15-inclusive-nos-springbank-terrace-and' rel='nofollow' href='http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/sc-20510-1-15-inclusive-nos-springbank-terrace-and'>Link</a><img style='padding-left:2px;' alt='External link' title='External link - shift click to open in new window' src='http://s1.geograph.org.uk/img/external.png' width='10' height='10'/> . This is right on the borderline between city centre and suburb and I've plumped for the latter for its geographical context.
