Sovereign House - Irvine, North Ayrshire

Sovereign House, Irvine, North Ayrshire, Scotland

This office block used to be, some years ago, Irvine Academy and the street along its left hand side is still named Academy Street.

The American gothic novelist and short story writer Edgar Allan Poe lived in Irvine when he was a boy (1815 or so) and was sent to the old burgh school at Kirkgatehead. His family lived in the Bridgegate, now demolished and replaced by the pedestrian area south of the cross in the middle of this photo.
