Wellington Street would have been much more engaging if they would have not decided to widen it and consequently remove the trees of both sides of the street.  ...

A lot of building on that photo have disappeared: the Rideau Club (1979) and a bank (Banque Nationale?) on what used to be called the Bankers' Row.Note that we used to be able to see the Museum of Nature and several churches on Elgin street....
