History

The cluster of houses at 8-20 Snows Court were designed and built in 1884 by Oliver Cox for developer Edwin Greer. Nos. 10-20 are extremely simple rowhouses, lacking any ornamental or architectural design. The doors are at ground level, and generally lack ornamental features. The buildings end without a cornice.
