In 1860 this site was occupied by the general store of George Schultz who capitalised during the goldrush era by advertising – ‘Picks, Pans & Lavatory Cans’. It was followed by Eden stores of T.J.Ramsey. The building was outstanding in design for the times and advertised as a newsagents, draper, ironmonger and general store, and also sold fashionable millinery, fancy goods, boots and Ramsey’s blend of tea, etc.
A lookout/clocktower was mounted on roof but clock never installed. Premises later became a ships chandlers and maritime store.
