Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 19
The building's from 1901; the date up top, 1869, refers to the founding of Kempthorne Prosser, a drug company that in 1881 became a fertilizer manufacturer, mixing sulfuric acid and bone dust to make superphosphate. Yes, it sometimes used guano, too. It stayed in business until 1978. This building was its warehouse. It later became a warehouse for Sew Hoy, a Chinese importer and garment manufacturer, and it's sometimes called the Sew Hoy Building.
