Developed in the second half of the eighteenth century, Bond Street was the first road built northwards from North Street. The town commissioners renamed it New Street in May 1794, but it reverted to its original name when the New Road opened nearby in 1805.
The first photograph shows numbers 12 and 13 which were originally two private houses; they were the offices of the Corporation Water department for more than a century. Aird & Co is number 14.
