Looking down Davie St which looked a lot like South Elm. A few commercial row buildings still stand. The tall building in the background is the King Cotton Hotel.

Great pictures - thanks for sharing! Would love to have some of those old buildings (and the streetcars!) back.

Seeing those old pictures of Davie Street makes me even more upset about how crappy the Westin project is turning out to be.

I'm disappointed in the downgrade of the deck design. They are keeping the street level retail but the deck design is dated circa late 1980s. I know the city tried to cut cost but they could have dressed it up better than that. It least turn it into a large mural with a mesh type material allowing the deck to remain open air to prevent carbon monoxide.
