Details (Known As) Former Largs Bay Land and Investment Company's Shops
Registered Name Shops
Significance The former Largs Bay Land and Investment Company's Shops date from the 1880s and form part of the Jetty Road Commercial Precinct. Most of the original material of the shops remains. They were built by the Largs Bay Land and Investment Company as part of its speculative outer harbour development which included the Largs Jetty, a railway from Glanville to the jetty end and the Largs Pier Hotel. Their close physical proximity to the Post Office and Railway Station in Jetty Road made them an integral part of the early development of the township of Largs. Noted as shops on a plan of Largs dated c1892, their significance arises from their association with the beginnings of the settlement, their almost original condition, and their being an excellent representation of a two-storey terrace of shops with residences above.

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
