Melville Avenue

Melville Avenue – no relation to the Moby Dick author – on a blustery cold Wednesday evening.

The street’s original name was Elgin; named after James Bruce Elgin, 8th Earl and Governor General of Canada from  1847-54.  The street’s name was changed when the Melville Presbyterian Church  was erected adjacent  a former bread factory.

Today, it is a place of worship for the Serbian Orthodox Church.
