This old building at 101 Market Street, on the corner of Nairn St, was occupied in the 1950s by J F Graham Real Estate and by Bell Bros Tyres. The original shingles were being replaced with iron when this photo was taken. FHC #4717.
This must be the Market St frontage. The building would have occupied all the limited space between Nairn and Collie Streets.
This must be the view from Collie St, probably on the same day (in FHC photo #4716). There is a modern building on the site now:
In this capture from Google Maps from about the same spot in 2016, the same windows may be seen in the background in the rear of the Literary Institute building (Dome).
In 1972, there was a caryard on the Market/Nairn/Collie corner. FHC #ES00369, Murray Edmonds slide.
