Description

Date/Time: January 25, 2000, 12:00 p.m.
My vantage point for this photograph was the southwest corner of St. Catherine and Stanley Streets on an overcast winter day. A tall building on the left and the fourth building on the right have not changed, thus they were perfect reference points for lining up my camera. Although many of the businesses have changed, the commercial character of this street-corner has not. Signs in the top left corner of Notman's photograph are still visible in mine, and provide visual clues to this continuity. Even in 1915 people were rushing by, mostly ignoring the camera.
