In the above picture, the historic 1870s houses sit on a parking lot on the east side of John Street. The corner of John and Adelaide, which has been a hive of activity for the past month, is now now silent and empty. The construction equipment and numerous workers have departed the scene. The tree that once grew on John Street, lies strewn across the corner of the vacant lot. It was sacrificed to permit the houses to be moved on to the parking lot.
