This comparison demonstrates a bit more the industrial past of Lebreton Flats.  We don't have the exact story of the buildings shown on the archival photo, but it seems that the garage at the corner of Duke and Booth had a certain affinity with Seiberling Tires from the numerous ads on the buildings.  

The local company Baker Bros., still in activity under the name of Baker Brothers Iron & Metal, occupied the imposing 5 story building, the tallest building of Lebreton Flats at that time.

Speaking of height, it looked like the tallest point in Centretown in 1962 was the Christ Church Cathedral which is visible at a distance on the right-hand side on both photos.
