Description:
This is a photograph showing the southeast corner of Queen and Wellington Streets and the northeast corner across the street. Notice that the streets are paved, dating the photograph post 1921. On the north side of Queen Street you can see the Royal Bank of Canada and Andrews Jeweller.

The building visible on the south side of Queen Street was built by T.B. Guest, the first Reeve and Mayor of St. Marys. It is divided into three sections. The one on the corner, which is visible in this photo, originally housed William Gordon, a dry goods dealer. Since 1892, it has been occupied by the bank of Montreal.

In front of the Bank of Montreal, you can see the Weir Fountain, which was constructed in 1903 as a present to the town from William Weir. The fountain was originally painted dark green. It still stands, but is currently painted blue (July 2018).
