Additional Information

The fragile plans show two one-up, one-down cottages built to the rear of Mr. Swift's property, and partly replacing a stable which is to be demolished. Each cottage has a living room and two bedrooms, and a small cellar and basement which is under part of the property. Mr Swift's property on the western side of Bradford Road, adjacent to the Hebble Beck has a substantial garden which includes a summer house. The proposed cottages are at the rear of the property.

In the 1879 Directory, Mr John H. Swift of 141 Bradford Road (Hebble Terrace) advertises his business as 'Auctioneer & Valuer, Tenant Right and Machine Valuer'. His premises are at 25, John William Street.

The plans are signed by Edward Hughes, who submitted the Building Notice. This is signed 'R.L. for Edward Hughes'.
