Hogan's Alley used to be here. This is a south-facing angle, with Gore Street to the left and the ramp of the viaduct ahead. In the distance along the skyline you can see the old train station near Main and Terminal. The fact that in the early to mid-20th century many black men worked as railway porters probably explains why this was the central black community back then. Perfect spot for some sort of public art or memorial explaining that there was once a community of about 400 African-Canadians living within a five block radius of here.
