Here's a lovely old view of the Boulevard, with the cathedral in the background. This one dates from approximately 1926 (date amended from previous estimation - with thanks to Eddie - see comment below). Queen Victoria's statue can also be seen. Victoria died in 1901 and the statue was erected in her honour in about 1905. On the extreme right, above the tram, you can just see the top half of the Gladstone statue.
