Throughout the Gaslamp, this is the only building with an original second story balcony. The upstairs has operated as rented rooms under the names of the Cotheret, Ardmore, and Gaslamp Hotel. The Canary Cottage, run by San Diego's most notorious madam, Ida Bailey, was behind this structure. The narrow alley to the right provided Bailey's patrons access to the cottage and the Pan Tan Gambling House.
