Caption: Marker detail: Great Fire 1877
Additional Description: English:
Though the 1841 Custom House was thought to be fireproof, its wooden doors and window frames allowed flames to enter and destroy the building during the Great Fire in 1877.

Bien que l'immeuble du Bureau de douane ait été présumé à l'épreuve du feu, ses portes et ses cadres de fenêtre en bois permirent aux flammes d'y entrer et de détruire le bâtiment lors du Grand Incendie de 1877.
