Greenock stone faces

Where do you think this beautiful sculptured head can be found in Greenock?  Municipal Buildings, perhaps?  No - it can actually be seen on a tenement building fronting Brougham Street and Margaret Street.  There are also a couple more equally interesting sculptures on the same building.  Doesn't look too happy, does he?

Sometimes Greenock can surprises you with what it has to offer!  The building dates from 1870 and was constructed by William & James York, Contractors who also had a part in the construction of the Albert Harbour in Greenock.  The property was named Lorne Place when it was first constructed.

It came with all mod cons - kitchen ranges and venetian blinds!

Sometimes it pays to look up at buildings - you never know what you might see!
