Re: Prince's Building

Prince's Building (1st generation) was finally finished in 1904 with the completion of the south-east section of the building.

Prince's Building

Reading the text indicates the date to be 1900.

"Thus, thanks to its moral, commercial, and geographical advantages, Victoria is in 1900 the third sea- port of the world, rivaling New York, surpassing Liverpool."

Queen's builiding was completed in 1899, and Princes Building was not started until after that.
