Kobe Meiji 1890s Unknown
Kaigandori (also known as the Bund) in the foreign settlement of Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture.

The building on the left corner, located at No. 1, initially housed the offices of Mourilyan, Heimann & Co. During the 1880s, it became the office of W. M. Strachan & Co., Limited, an insurance agency.

The building with the screens on the veranda was located at No. 2, and for a long time housed the office of Walsh Hall & Co. Founded in 1868 (Meiji 1) by American trader John Walsh and his brother, the company owned a paper mill in Sannomiya that would grow into the Mitsubishi Paper Mills. This building was later sold to the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank, which located their Kobe Branch here.
