The old Russell and Co building (with two pointed arches) is on the left. Directly in front of it is a small, later structure. This small building was gone by c.1900, when the larger building was renovated and given a new facade. See Bi01-072. The next building to the right is Brand Bros. & Co. On the far right we see part of the Kelly & Walsh bookshop, a building which they occupied c.1879-1918.




March 1891
