  1. Hey, I know you posted this a while back, but I'm pretty sure your St Catharine's shot shows the Northwest Side of St Paul st, near Queen:,-79.245324&spn=0.001941,0.003836&t=h&z=18&layer=c&cbll=43.156984,-79.245261&panoid=JcG7QO1DrJAJEkeLb2V3YA&cbp=12,354.92,,0,-9.67

  2. This link might work better:,-79.245324&spn=0.001941,0.003836&t=h&z=18&layer=c&cbll=43.156984,-79.245261&panoid=JcG7QO1DrJAJEkeLb2V3YA&cbp=12,354.92,,0,-9.67

    If it doesn't, line yourself up so you're in front of Kaz's, with Mikado to your extreme right, almost out of frame.
