This three-storey brick building on Rosser Avenue in Brandon was designed by local architect Walter Henderson Shillinglaw and built in 1902 for shoe merchant brothers William Zink (1855-?) and Jacob E. Zink (1859-?). Sold in 1919, it then hosted Knowlton’s Boot Shop. Other businesses that have occupied the building through the years included grocers Smith and Burton, jeweller William Edward Crawford, and Lucette's Hat Shop.
