The plaque reads:

"Timkin Building, 1894

Henry Timkin invented the roller bearing for the
horse-drawn carriage, and was one of San
Diego's leading real estate investors. In 1894, he
built this building atthe cost of $7,200. It is
most notable for the top brick overhang and the
large second-floor skylights. The first tenant was
the Mint Saloon, which also operated furnished
rooms on the second floor. Later the ground
floor housed a clothing store, a shooting gallery,
and a Multi-Cultural Center."
