Glen Mill store. It burned - as a child I saw it from the attic of No 3 opposite - probably 1937.

Baptist Church. Burned down in 1938. Fire and water damage to Nos 1 and 3 Houston St alongside led to that building being emptied and the inhabitants housed elsewhere.

Shipbuilding became one of Scotland's major industries in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Kingston yard was established in 1874, and eventually became part of the Scott-Lithgow group, who ran it until 1997 when it was cleared and sold off to Clydeport plc for redevelopment. It is now occupied by housing.
