In the early twentieth century the building of sheds, popularly known as tinglados, to cover
the goods left at the port such as coffee, cocoa and grain began. Shed No. 1, seen in the
picture, was attached to the building of the Board of Port Works and replaced the wooden
shacks that previously had this function.
Where today stands the Bosch i Alsina docks, a neoclassical facade was built with a colourful
arcade with an indoor and terrace – walk upstairs. In 1960, under the reform plan of Port
Vell, shed number 1 was demolished with the aim of once again turning towards the sea.
