This photo was taken on Monday 16 July at 5 pm. During the day, a section of the cement was poured to cover large sections of the exposed tracks. The view is looking toward the southeast corner of Queen and Spadina.


In this photo, in the foreground, only one more section of the track remains to be encased in cement.

I have spent much of my adult life researching Toronto. Exploring the city’s history is the main purpose of my blog.
