Benevolent Buildings 1834
On the corner of Vernon Street and Market Street lie the Benevolent Buildings built in 1834.
I only noticed the sign in the wall very recently. Part of the building is now a private art gallery while on the corner is a chandlers.
I was pleased to see that they had cut a space in the wooden cladding so as not to obscure the old sign.
I know nothing about its history.
