Doddsie, from the entry you mention from 1905, John Stevenson is showing as Proprietor and Occupier on the index.

Following this....

1915 shows John Stevenson as proprietor of Nos. 10 - 12 - 14 - 16. He looks to have been occupying No. 14. The entries give the address as:

MUIRSIDE ROAD MUIREDGE TERRACE BAILLIESTON

Monica,
           On the 1905, I am not certain but I think the way it reads, John Stevenson, Miner,  may be Propretor of numbers 5, 6, 7, 8.     

           And I have just been looking at the 1915 Rolls, probably at the same time of you, and there were quite a few Stevensons living there, and John Stevenson seems to be Proprietor of 10, 12, 14, and 16.       I think I can see why it might be talked about as being "Stevenson's Place" instead of Muiredge Terrace.

           I went through 91 pages of the 1915 Rolls, searching for "Stevenson's Place" and I didn't see it.      So maybe Muiredge Terrace is correct.

           I live only a mile from that building and when I was a boy, I used to be able to take a short-cut through a large underpass that cuts right under the houses like a tunnel.   The short-cut brought you out onto Main Street, Baillieston right next to the house named "Edelweiss" where the Templetons used to live..     You can't take that short-cut any more!

Agree, makes sense doesn't it why it would be called Stevenson's place.

By 1925, his estate was growing! Now shows as:

10 - 12 - 14 - 16a to 16e - 18

 As stated previous John Stevenson built the houses at Muiredge terrace, Hi initials JS and a date are on the building. I am told by my wife, who was born in No1, and is his great grandaughter that he lost his arm in a mining accident which enabled him to erect the building.
