Bell Building Corner Bannantyne and 2nd ave., 1945 - 2009

The top photo shows the artist's illustration wich appeared in the Guardian issue of October 25th 1945 of the Bell building at the corner of Bannantyne between 1st and 2nd avenue. The lower photo  I took Saturday from a  different angle with view of 1st avenue and if you look closely you will notice the similarity.

I remember this building very well. My uncle, Jum Wilson was the manager of this site for many years. He lived on Valiquette and walked to this building every day - rain, shine or snow - until he retired.

Wasn't that building at 1st and Bannantyne across from the park? We use to try and figure out the door code to get a better look inside at all the step-by-step and crossbar relay racks.
