Former Main Street in downtown Hull showing the Block Scott on the left-hand side.  The archival photo also shows the streetcar and its rails that used to service the streets of Hull several decades ago.

The ambiance on Main Street, now Promenade du Portage, has considerably changed.  Back in the day, no building on that street had more than 4 stories which made them closer to human-scale.  Brutalism and out-of-scale buildings no doubt contributed to drastically changed the ambiance and the vocation of that main street of Hull
