    I hope you’ve taken those to the archives so they could get copies!

    Amazing photos when one studies them closely - and in just zooming in via my tiny screen!!!!!

          There are only a few buildings left standing: MacDonald Hotel, CIBC building on 101 st and Jasper, and the McLeod Building top left with black and white sign near the top. What the white building to the south of the McLeod is I don't have a clue. It looks like Chancery Hall but that's a block or so north.
          I see now that "white building" is part of the McLeod Building. Here's a good photo: link

              According to the historical info, the intersection is 100th st and 104th ave., the part would be where the City Hall sits now, The Court House sits another block east.
