^ Two things about this picture:

1. The old library
2. Is that the old ski jump near the top of Connors Rd?

Is the building in front of Hotel MacDonald going up or being demolished? If going up, it didn't last very long. That land's probably been vacant since the LRT was built.

On the other side of the river, shame they demolished over half of that neighbourhood to build the James MacDonald Bridge.
