St Mary's Library - 1914

Sticking with St. Mary’s again today, while I’ve seen a number of pictures of the outside of the building, I think this might be the first time I’ve seen a shot of the inside. This view shows us the library, which still seems to be decorated in a Victorian…

University & Victoria - 1972

A shot of the ground floor banking space in the Metropolitan Building from an ad that was published in 1972. A neat shot of the corner when it was occupied. The last tenant that I can remember was the HSCB bank, that has since moved to the old Krispy Kreme doughnut shop on Howard Ave at the south end of the Roundhouse Plaza. Interesting to note that that block of Victoria has recently been…
