This modest terraced house is a fine example of late-nineteenth-century worker's housing. Built for the workers of the London and North Western Railway, which was completed in 1873, the terrace is an integral part of Greenore. Their simple forms are enhanced by the attractive yellow brick window dressings, a feature of Euston Street, and they stand as a reminder of the development of Greenore as an important transit point in the late-nineteenth century.
