Pulteney and Devonshire Buildings circa 1900s
 Again my collection lacks any detail pictures of both terraces. This enlargement from a Louis Levy view from around 1900 gives some idea of the splendid Georgian features of Pulteney Buildings. Devonshire Buildings can be seen in the lower picture taking a line towards the harbour. A considerable amount of land reclamation work was required to enable building. Construction began in 1805 and took some  years to complete. The bowed end of Devonshire Buildings was remodelled after building was completed. Today this terrace remains a most attractive feature thanks to the uniform decorative policy and the pride of the occupants.
