This is a vintage photograph of an unusually deserted Frederick Street around the period 1890s to early 1900s. The time on the clock midway down the street is almost noon. There is a policeman and a few other persons on the left side of the pavement. Above him the store’s sign reads “Maillard’s – Boots, Shoes - The Best Footwear - Value Nowhere Like Maillard’s”. This building and the one on the opposite side of the street are both beautifully embellished with decorative wrought iron. Wilsons Limited, the store on the opposite side of the street, has a large sign in Spanish at the store window. Looking down Frederick one can see a tram in the distance. Tram lines converge at the corner of Frederick Street and Marine Square known today as Independence Square, North.
