Like the nearby Tom Taylor's in Fish Dock Road (qv), these
ranges are a good example of the combined shops and warehouses
that characterize Grimsby Docks, dating from the period when
Grimsby was the world's foremost fishing port.
Cosalt was one of the largest fishing industry companies, with

branches worldwide. Other former Cosalt buildings include the
Waterproof Clothing Factory in Robinson Street East (qv), the
Net Workshop attached to the Fisher Lads Home, Victor Street
(qv) and the Grimsby Cordage Works, Convamore Road (qv).
