    Jack, Wondering if you have any pics of the old Sunnyside train station? As I recall ( living on Dowling as a kid until 1953) the station was above on King St and you had to walk down to track level. Also there was a restaurant accessible from Lakeshore Blvd adjacent to the tracks. Just east of the restaurant was outdoor natural ice where we skated in the winter. I have fond memories of our years in Parkdale…remember hearing, on the way to school at Queen Victoria, the cox in the “eights” from the Argonaut rowing Club calling out the stroke rate…on a rainy morning when the humidity really carried the sound!

      There are pictures under the article about ‘the history of transit on Humber Bay’. I will put it on my list to make an article of Synnyside Station Pictures.
