34 and 46 Channel Street is perhaps the best preserved of the later 19th century commercial buildings on Channel Street. While relatively modest, the building consists of an long stretch of unaltered façade, including, most unusually in the context, the original layout of the shop fronts. The building, which was built at the height of the success of the town, is an important reminder of the quality of the building in the main commercial street during the period.
