Can anyone identify where this picture, simply labelled "Canada", is?

I was wondering the same thing. If it's early 1900s, it's one of four cities: Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg or Vancouver. Possibly Halifax, but I'm not familiar enough with Halifax at that period. It doesn't look like anything that still exists in Montreal. Winnipeg didn't have those broad boulevards. It's either Toronto or Vancouver and judging from the surroundings, I'd put my money on Toronto.

I went on the Albert Kahn website and it says it is Granville Street, Vancouver.
