Building on pilings on the left was originally a glue factory constructed by Le page Liquid Fish Glue, Oil and Fertilizer Company Ltd. Incorporated February 15, 1907. The products were manufactured from dog fish. The Union Steamship Company's vessel `Lady Cecilia' is at the dock. The large white house on the left of the wharf is the C. P.
