This large-scale colour air photo obtained in 2000 enables more easy identification of features shown on the smaller scale panchromatic photo in figure 8.56, as well as showing changes that have taken place since the photo in figure 8.56 was taken.
1) Only two of the four elevators remain 1.

5) A new large building in the west 8 could be a school or a seniors’ residence.
6) Residential settlement has filled in one block 9 and has spread further west 10 and east 11 than on figure 8.56.
