BUILDING INFORMATION
Name & Location
F. & G. Perkins Co. Block
41 Front Street East
Waterfront Communities-The Island, Toronto

OTHER IDENTIFICATION
Alternate names:
Continental Salvage / Perkins, Ince & Co.

Notes:
This building was altered in 1874-75. This property’s contribution lies in its historic relation to the rail lines; its role in the economic intensification of the District in the late 19th century; its association with architect Frank Darling; its prominent location facing Berczy Park; and its relation to the adjacent 19th century commercial warehouses and the Gooderham Flatiron Building. The structure also contributes to the physical character of the District through the integrity of its Romanesque Revival architectural detailing as well as its tripartite design; materiality (polychrome brickwork, stone and cast iron); 3 – 5 storey height; glazed storefronts with recessed entrances; and expressed cornice - attributes which characterize the commercial warehouse typology within the District.
