This building was used as temporary premises by HSBC while the bank redeveloped its own building:

From 1882 until 1888, the Bank was accommodated in the offices previously occupied by the P. and O. Company, situated west of the present Central Market, on the corner of Jubilee Street and Des Voeux Road.
