Bayview Junction, from a 'true' 28mm perspective


  This photo started at Toronto Camera ( Yonge Street near Gould ) pre-owned counter...where I found a nearly new Nikkor 28mm f2.8


 CN geep #4100  /  RS-18m #3154 ( with a wave from the head end brakeman)  leads VIA CN #75 at Bayview, March 18, 1978 Kodak Tri X negative by S.Danko


  what's interesting: no one I knew bought new Nikon / Nikkor camera equipment, lenses were $459 up while quality used Nikkor were $279 or so and up, this was 1978, equivalent prices today's dollars:  $1,808.  and  $1,099,  just for the lens !


  Unknown who the Ford Maverick owner is.  My '77 Chev Impala top left.

  1. Rather nice image.
    Note the ‘garbage trough’ in lower center. At this spot many guys changed their cars’ oil between trains. It eventually got filled in.
    Every time I see photos like this, I am thinking “those were the days my friend; we thought they’d never end.”

  2. Thanks for the reminder….a couple of guys made use of the ‘garbage trough’ open culvert! Oh yes, Bayview Jct was the place to visit for the network news!
