To the left of the empty section can be seen the former Public Library (the city's 4th) that stood on the corner of The Square and Fitzherbert Avenue. Soon after this photograph was taken this building was also demolished, to make way for a new, 2 million dollar, ten-storey building for the National Mutual Life Association. Construction began in June 1975.
