  1. Checking some aerial imagery of the period, it looks like it was shot from the western end of the north station platform looking southwest. The gondolas would be on the station backtracks on the south side. It’s possible the lumber dealer wasn’t visible from this angle.

  2. Magnificent shot. I’m having a hard time placing where this was taken. Now in summer of ’57 I would only have been 4. However, since my father rode the CN commuter train from Port Credit everyday I was often there. We only had one car in those years so my Mom would drop him off in the morning and pick him up in the evening if she needed the car. I don’t see Thompson Lumber’s location if the train is westbound. The station was on the south side of the tracks with Thompson just behind. Can you give me a clue where you were standing when you took that shot Bill? That’s nearly 60 years ago.

  3. Also funny this is posted today.. I was at Port Credit GO this morning – not too many shots to be had though, it’s very cluttered up…

  4. Great action – Thanks for sharing this gem Bill.
