A SPRING WALK THROUGH KINGSTON AND ITS NEIGHBORHOOD

IMPROVEMENTS, PROSPECTS, ETC.

No. VII

Mr. Richard Scobell has lately greatly enlarged and improved his Wharf; it now measures 124 feet in front and 140 feet deep; it has also been filled in, rendering it a solid and endurable structure. He is also erecting on the premises a fire-proof Stone Warehouse, with iron shutters etc. Its dimensions will be 80 by 40 feet, and 24 feet high. Messrs. Miller & Brothers have leased all Mr. Scobell's premises, including wharf, new warehouse and dwelling-house - Mr. Scobell only retaining the pork-packing house and the potash-inspecting house. The very extensive stores belonging to this establishment are at the present time filled to overflowing with native produce. We can hardly venture to hazard a conjecture as to the number of barrels of pork which are there stowed away, but we should think there are considerably over a thousand; this, however, is mere guess-work; we had no opportunity of ascertaining correctly.....
