What time frame?
Where did the address come from? (eg census, certificate?)

I don't know if it will help but in the 1911 census Draper's Buildings is in Reg District 479, no 12:

A nice map here but no mention of Draper's Buildings:

(click on the overlay map to get a better idea of coverage)

It can be useful to follow the enumerator's route to pin down locations, however this is not so easy with Scottish censuses.

The date context of the address might help in the search.

My Uncle and Aunt born Drapers Buildings 1910 and 1913.  Quick google search shows someone living at number 93 so quite big.

Will take a look at the maps now.

Thank you all.

Locating them on the 1911 census would generally be very helpful, however viewing the images of the 1911 Scottish census requires payment.

If you have a subscription to Ancestry or any other pay site, you will only be able to view a transcript of the entry. I am not sure if you can look at the neighbour’s entries as you can with the English census?

You generally come across a landmark which helps narrow down the address.

I don’t have access to any pay sites, otherwise I would have a look for you.

Let us know if you find it.

Have you checked the valuation rolls on Scotlands People? Not that it will help with the location, but they might give you some other useful details.

I think in the 1901 census it is referred to as "Draper's Land" in Falkirk  www.nrscotland.gov.uk › files › research › 1901 › 1901-falkirk

On the census transcripts for 1901, there is a "Parkfoot Draper's Land" in Falkirk with 57 people showing at that address that year in different households, very likely tenement buildings of some form

As Ruskie suggests, try looking at the VRs on Scotlands People to see if you get further details on the address.

There are no transcripts for the 1911 census, only original images on SP.

Thanks for the reminder Monica. I knew that there were no transcripts of the 1911 Scottish census and have no idea why I suggested Heather look at them.  :-\
