More Information:


Named after the nearby Bellahoustan Academy, Academic Terrace was the name for the block of tenements on Clifford Street between Porter Street and Gower Street. The block still exists today and was built sometime between 1895-1909.

It was common in Victorian times for blocks of buildings to be named differently from the street(s) they were located on and the blocks could be located in one or more streets, this naming of blocks was more common in the more affluent Govan suburbs such as Ibrox and the style of tenement on Clifford Street reflect this affluence.
