The Scow Shed (c.1925-1928) was a work area for shipwrights, building and maintaining scows and the scavenger dog boats which towed them. Scows are flat-bottomed vessels which are not self-powered. They were used for the collection and transport of garbage around the harbour and were towed by steam tugs.
