Gibb Surround (detail) to doors to Miln's Buildings, Nethergate, Dundee, c1790 by Samuel Bell, town architect.
Note the raised quoins (detail) and the loss of the original glazing detail. The astragals or glazing bars have been removed in most cases so that a twelve pane divide (detail) becomes two, and some of the sliding sashes have been replaced with side-hung sashes (detail).
Some of the margins have been painted (detail), some remain in natural stone.
Note also the flyover stair and platt arrangement (detail) which allows access to the doors.
