I'm interested in the old route that allowed Winchester St. (beside the Zoo) to connect with the old Don Mills Rd. (now Broadview).
The pathway crossed the Don River and two RR tracks before reaching the Danforth intersection.
This 1947 aerial photo assisted in my understanding of the changes since 1947.
Winchester St. now comes to an abrupt end at the Bayview Extension.
Some maps (this 1890) name the extension of Winchester (even north of Danforth) as Don Mills Rd..
Thanks for that image of York U.'s Scott Library, Geogblog.
I was certainly surprised to see it because of a co-incidence.......There's currently an exhibit of some of my photography at that Scott Library building.
It's titled, "Portraits of Digital Canada" and I encourage UTers in the York neighbourhood to have a look.
I just did a date search in the City Archives, and it turned up. I enjoyed that exhibit though. Portraits of a vanished age. A good match for a building in a university which embraced the age in question.
Not Toronto...but still evocative...................An aviation first, one hundred years ago!
