From the founding of Halifax in 1749 until the early twentieth century, this portion of the waterfront was associated with men and events in the civic and commercial life of the city. These seven typical warehouses and offices, erected between 1815 and 1905, housed individual merchants as well as international trading and shipping companies. This ironstone building housed the office of the shipping firm, Pickford & Black (1876-1968). The building opposite was the head quarters of the Halifax Banking Company (1825-1908) and of its leading entrepreneur, Enos Collins.
