Wellington Court
Almon Street

For those who have never heard of it, Wellington Court was housing located on the site where the Canada Post plant stands today on Almon Street. As I understand it, Wellington Court was used by the army during World War II before it was used as civilian housing.

The first 2 pictures below focus on the "exhibition grounds" in the centre of the complex, apparently during a Fire Department demonstration.  You can see the housing in the background.  In the first and third pictures, you can see the now demolished "Piercey's" tower.
