The Argyle Buildings house the offices of the: ADELAIDE STEAMSHIP COY. LIMTD.; AUSTRALASIAN UNITED STEAM NAV. COY. LTD.; ALBANY PRODUCE & GROCERY CASH STORE; WM. HOWARD SMITH; and GEORGE WILLS, agent for the ROYAL INSURANCE COMPANY. A street away is the façade of REYNOLDS GARDEN THEATRE. Most of the commercial buildings are two storeyed, with arched windows, parapet finials such as urns and corrugated iron roofs. The hotel has verandas and iron lace railings. The building with the clock tower surmounted by a cupola is the Albany Town Hall on York Street. It was opened in 1888 and the clock was installed in 1891.
