Queen and Parliament/Then and Now

Looking south on Parliament towards Queen Street East in 1959.
The building on the right with the "Drugs" sign is the former Rupert Hotel.
Built in the late 1870's it was considered one of the better hotels in the area.
In the late 1980's there was a tragic fire there that claimed 10 lives.
You can see the hotel sign on the side of the building.
