TTC PCC 4382 (an A6-class car built by CC&F in 1947-48) heads eastbound on College Street on a Carlton run bound for Danforth & Main, passing the University of Toronto's Mining Building (dating from 1905) at the corner of College and Taddle Creek Road. Judging by the lack of automobile and pedestrian traffic, this was likely taken on a Saturday or Sunday downtown. The white building in the background near Spadina is the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry, a modernist concrete office tower designed by John B. Parkin Associates and completed a few years earlier in 1964 (now the home of CAMH College St.).  Taddle Creek Road was named after a small stream that used to run through the area (that was buried and turned into an underground creek/sewer). The road formerly ran between College St. and Hoskins through the UofT campus, but was broken up into segments (it became parts of Tower Rd., Hart House Circle, King's College Cir.) around when the Medical Sciences Building was built in 1969. A small stub of Taddle Creek Rd. remained as a service road into the early 2000's, until the UofT's Donnelly Centre was built over it in 2005.  Original photographer unknown, Dan Dell'Unto collection slide.
