These two images have a number of common features. Most of the buildings in this block have been retained over the years, including the Hotel Strathcona. And the space where the “Model Boot Shop” was located in 1936 today is occupied today by “Model Express” a shop that appears to have footwear (boots included) for women of a certain profession.
