Bingo! Two pointer.

Below is the Canada Life Assurance Building (a.k.a. Birks Building) which replaced the lovely, though simple buildings in the above photo. The Bank of British North America stands to the left. Love the hitching posts along James.

James and Cannon? I don't remember the name of the church however. I'm not even totally sure because I figure that the Tivoli should be beside it though I suppose that building could have been there as well. The present day strip mall is pretty big...

Don't think there was ever a church on Catherine there. One side was the old transit terminal (present day terminal towers/crowne hotel) and the other was a commercial building beside the connaught, I believe it had a radio station in it?

edit: unless you're referring to captainkirk's photo. Yeah, thats King and Catherine.

Yes, this church was at James and Cannon but you're off about the Tiv - that's at Wilson.

What stands on this lot now is the 'floating box' that houses the Japanese and Vietnamese restaurants.

Well done.

That lot at James and Cannon would be perfect for the building I posted in the dream development thread:
