CQ Highlight: The Birkin Building

August 7th 2019

by CQ

The gateway, which leads to the Jacoby warehouse on the southern side, incorporated some delightful stonework detail. Etched into the stone were Birkin’s initials and bee emblem, an architect’s motif of dividers and squares, together with the builder’s initials G and H (Garland and Holland) and a builder’s motif of hammer and trowel with the date 1855, the year the warehouse was completed.
