Inscription.  

The Market House - This three storey Classical style building was designed by renowned English architect Sir Charles Barry for the 3rd Marquis of Lansdowne. Barry (1795-1860) was a prominent architect of his time. Probably his most famous work, undertaken in partnership with Victorian architect A.W.N. Pugin, is Westminster Palace (The House of Parliament) in London. Pugin's influence is also seen in the architecture of Holy Cross Church and the nearby Convent. You will pass both on the heritage trail.
