March 1854: Auction of House at No. 3 Windsor Place, Sauchiehall Street, Occupied by J. T. Rochead, Architect

An advertisement on page three of The Glasgow Herald, on Monday the 27th of February, 1854, informed

readers that the self-contained house at 3 Windsor Place, which was occupied by J. T. Rochead, Esq., architect,

would be sold by public auction, in the Stock Exchange, National Bank Buildings, on Wednesday the 8th of March.

The Upset Price was £1050, and the auctioneers were Skirving and Blackwood.


The property comprised eight rooms and kitchen, with out-houses, etc., along with the vacant ground in

front and behind. Two of the rooms were “fitted up and occupied as the Business Office, and the remainder

as the Dwelling House.”


Located on Sauchiehall Street, between West Campbell Street and Wellington Street, north-facing Windsor Place

can be seen on the 1857-58 Ordnance Survey Map, 1st Edition, VI.10. The map shows a terrace of eight houses, with

gardens, looking on to Sauchiehall Street, and gardens and a lane to the rear.


It is worth noting Kensington Place, to the west of it, and Wellington Place, to the east.
