So while doing some research I came across a link on the city's site which shows pictures of demolished buildings. These pics are linked to sites on an aerial map. The pictures are from the late 50s to mid 60s.
 
Enjoy

Thanks, Aaron.   I remember that peaked roof open-frame boxcar shelter from my wee days.

Superb find Aaron! Interesting to compare these photos to what I saw and photographed in the 1980's. Maybe these should be moved to the Store St. and CN threads.

Thanks,
 
Yeah it sure is a cool find and I am sure there are many more out there. I plan to head out to the city and provincial archives in the new year.
