A subway for the suburbs: between the lanes of the Allen Road, a six-pack of TTC H1 subway cars lead by 5362 head southbound on the new Spadina subway line (in its first year of operation at the time), about to duck into Glencairn subway station. The houses on the left are off Glen Park Avenue (once a through street, but truncated when expropriation and demolition happened in the 60's for the expressway), and the bridge in the background is Glengrove Avenue ("Glens" abound). The checkered water tower in the distance sits on top of the Simpsons distribution warehouse, later to be redeveloped into Lawrence Square Plaza.
