Often when I'm downtown I think about some of the empty lots that seem like they've been empty forever, and wonder what was there before. It sometimes amazes me that these lots in prime or at least semi-prime areas have been able to remain empty or as small parking lots literally for decades.

One of those lots is the one on the corner of Prince and Market Streets. This one has been empty for as long as I can reasonably remember.

I did find some pics on the Halifax Municipal Archives from the early 1960s that show the old residence and corner store that existed there:
