The block formed by Metcalfe Street, Wellington Street and O'Connor Street was known as the Bankers' Row because of the several banks present on that block, right in front of the Parliament.  The corner of Wellington Street and O'Connor, on the current photo, was the west end of that prestigious stretch of Wellington Street.

I think there's something off with the location/timing of the older photo in this combination. The current Victoria Building (red and white building in the modern photo) was built in 1927/8 and would have been present in 1938 (the date of the older photo).
