The former Grand Trunk master mechanic's office awaits renovation. This building became the front portion of the popular Southshore Community Centre. Despite the honeysuckle growing through the roof and evidence of a couple of fires in the attic, the interior woodwork was intact. I work for the architect that designed the renovation. We needed to determine the roof peak height to tie in the addition. A co-worker reached up unto the attic space to grab on to a collar tie only to come back with a handfull of charred wood. That part of the framing got replaced. The fire hydrant on the right is one of two on the site with CNR embossed letters. here's a link to a better photo of one.  http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=18980  An E.P. Handy photo, posted with permission.
