Timeline:

  • 1888: I've assumed it was built in time for the opening of the tram, but it may have followed on shortly afterwards.
  • 19??: At some point a large clock was added to the north face of the building. We have a photo firmly dated to 1923 that doesn't show the clock, so it should have been added after then.

  • 1934: A guess at the demolition date, based on the replacement building opening in 1936.
