"Nothing to see Here".  Well, at least not any more.  The CN yard is gone. It is weeds. The obnoxious dangerous dust spewing Cyanamid plant in the background was torn down in 1992, after being a plague on the north-end of the city for many years. The two GP9s, 4589 and leader 4592 are no longer around.  This leaves us with pretty well nothing but the two track CN main line seen on the left. Most of what was once a notorious industry ( which produced calcium cyanide) and once was a rather large CN yard as seen in this photo is today nothing but wasteland, save for an arena built on part of the rejuvenated Cyanamid factory property on the far extreme left.
 So, the photo is old enough to be filed under history, having been taken from the Victoria Avenue overpass 45 years ago next month.
