Barretts, Clyde Place:
Centrally located at 52 Clyde Place, this unlisted former Barretts photographic supplies store sits on the south side of the river Clyde immediately across from the city centre. The building dates from the 1850s and known as the Ayrshire Tavern. This building is a three storey ashlar structure with a pitched slate roof. The west elevation has fenestration and the east elevation is a former party wall. The former building(s) to the east have been demolished and the wasteground left is currently used as a car park. The stonework has been painted in the past, much of this paint has since flaked off, this along with significant vertical cracks and plant growth highlights the poor overrall condition of the structure.
