Photos that show this Place


This building was on the west side of Pedder Street, between Jardine House and Pedder Building. You can see it in the bottom-right corner of this 1911 map, just above Jardines. (In this map, north is at the bottom.)

The map numbers it as 2 and 2A Pedder Street, and shows the US Consulate and the Mistu Bishi Co. were located there.

Here's a view of it under scaffolding in the 1920s. The photo was taken before Pedder Building was built, so at that time it's southern neighbour (the low building in the foreground) was the Gospel Hall.

Here's another view of it from above. It's the building in the lower right foreground that has two pitched roofs.
