TTC CLRV 4052 waits eastbound on Queen Street at Church Street on a 504 King run (that's diverted onto Queen in order to short-turn at Church), as its operator manually switches the track with a large switch bar (out of frame) in order to divert the car down Church and back on-route at King Street to complete its late morning short turn.
In the background is one of camera and electronic chain Henry's Cameras stores: their Toronto Outlet Centre on Queen west of Church, a stone's throw from their main Toronto flagshop store on Queen east of Church. Many older rail photographers likely frequented both shops over the years to get the latest and greatest, or a deal or two on something older. From a few visits at the time, the outlet store sold mainly used items including no shortage of old film cameras and film-mount lenses.

The outlet store was closed sometime between 2009-2011 (operations continued at the flagship store nearby), and TTC 4052 was retired in September 2019.

Judging by the sign, their School of Imaging may have been run out of the upper floors.
