British Bank of North America Building, before 1892

British Bank of North America Building, before 1892
At the left in each of these two views of Duckworth Street can be seen the British Bank of North America (BBNA). The right hand photo shows an additional story being built onto the bank, increasing the living space for the bank manager and his family. In the right hand photograph also note that the building to the the right of the BBNA has had an addition constructed on the front. These photos date from before 1892. The photo on the right was taken from the roof of the Athenaeum building which was destroyed in the 1892 fire.
