Among the first industries constructed alongside waterfront areas were warehouses. These buildings made it possible to store cargo coming ashore from ships until enough wagons, freight cars or trucks could be made available. They could also hold outbound freight until a ship arrived. Brick rapidly became the building material of choice in the 1800s, to provide a sturdy, fire-resistant building. Large windows let in plenty of natural light and skylights were also added to the roof. Many of these older buildings are still standing, some still serving as industrial structures, others converted into up-scale condominiums or apartments.
From the days of sail to the present, this handsome building makes a fine addition to any sea, lake or river port city. The HO Scale model comes molded in a variety of colors, and the parts are highly detailed to capture the look of brick-by-brick construction. As an additional feature, the kit can be built with standard molded windows, or with screen-printed windows which feature a thinner, more prototypical mullion.
