This last set of photos was taken on June 6, 1987 and shows the street torn up to to simplify the track removing the switches and crossing. The yard was also torn up around this time with only a single track remaining serving Garden City Warehouse around a 180 degree curve which was paved over resulting in the track going through a parking lot. Various other buildings were built on the location of the former yard. I have various action shots taken in 1987 and 1988 on the street but have not scanned those yet. Let me know if these would be of interest and I will do them next.

Victoria Public Market. This building was mentioned in earlier posts, at one time being Kelly Douglas Wholesale and then Wosk's Furniture which closed in 1982. It then became the Public Market and later Value Village. The little building on a pole was for a charity where someone stayed up there for several months to raise money.
