Prince's Building under construction 1899

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

IMHO  Alun
