Back in January of this year, I shared with you some negatives that I found in my befuddling collection of prints, slides, and negatives. Not only did I ask the question, what kind of negatives are these, but I also asked if anyone knew where these photos – admittedly some 50 years old – were taken!
Their story was told in this blog entry.
Surprisingly, with all the photographers who visit this site, no one has suggested negative size / format. I guess digital has swept most of that body of knowledge into the history books.
On the other hand, what a pleasant surprise that a relatively new reader of the blog from Calgary recognized the photo location and wrote me yesterday:
"I don't know why I didn't recognize this station when I first saw it especially since my daughter just lived up the street from here and I have walked and shopped in it - North Toronto station Yonge Street which is now and for some time a liquor store.
See RL Kennedy's web page."
With this information, I was able to determine that my rail fan buddy, Mike, who took the Canadian National Consolidation photos in the previous entry, shot those photos in Toronto in 1956!
