This block was built by the LMS in 1935 in front of their goods station. The first floor supposedly was occupied by the goods station office, but the whole floor seems excessive for a not very big operation, even by the labour-intensive standards of the time. There is a plan to demolish the block and replace it with multi-storey student accommodation, This is being vigorously opposed by the 'Save Our Leith Walk' campaign who think there are enough student student flats. I'm staying neutral.
