In this period a few private houses were built, as ribbon developments at the east end of North Street and each end of South Street.
The J B Rattray postcard from around 1938 gives a view from behind the entrance to Causewayend Quarry with Kirkton (built 1928) on the left, and 177 North Street (built 1932) on the right, of the 1930 council houses. The other views were taken in 2017.
On the north side of North Street the original appearance has survived in some places, including Nos. 1-19 and 137-147.
The 1970 view west from No.29 includes buildings on the lefthand side of the street, either side of Cornhill Road, which were soon to be demolished.
