This web page has vintage photos of the Capitol Theatre and of its predecessor, the Gem, as well as the Gaiety Theatre on Queen Street.

It isn’t possible to tell with absolute certainty from the old photo which corner of the intersection the Capitol was on, but given the slight but noticeable slope of the foundation, it was most likely the northeast corner. From that location the vertical sign would have been visible from the main part of the business district, as well, so that’s where I have set the street view.
