eF nOlG -ani.h n-an, 43 St. George Street, almost opposite the
Old Curiosity Shop, is yet another of the ooquina buildings
which date from the First Spanish Occupation. Unfortunately,
no definite date can be assigned, but it is known that the
house and lot were negotiable property in 1771i According to
tradition, the dwelling was once occupied by the daughter of
Sir Walter Soott. Its arched openings are typical of the stone
houses and shops that early lined St. George Street, the main
street of the ancient city since its founding.
