Here is a photo of Church Avenue looking south (Towards the river), possibly from Bannantyne or Verdun, dated the 30th of December 1905. You can faintly see the handwritten date on the lower right hand side. It is mentioned that it is a dirt road with wooden sidewalks. Also, notice that there is no traffic and no vehicules except for what seems to be a city watering tank, notice the hose under the tank going into the tree, surely horse driven. Looks like a deserted Western movie scene.
