The buildings on the right of this scene in Queen Street, and the church in the centre of the picture, are still recognisable  - but the remainder of the buildings have gone.  There in now an open area with sculptures and a large traffic roundabout in front of the church.  The church is now St Mary's Catholic Roman Catholic Cathedral.
