Royce/Dupont and Dundas St., April 6 1923

Royce/Dupont and Dundas St., April 6 1923

Royce Ave. (now Dupont St.) is one of the major roads that enters/exits out neighbourhood on both sides. Back in 1923, the intersection of Dundas St. West, Annette St., Royce Ave. (Dupont St.), and Old Weston Road was a much simpler affair, with a level crossing of the railway tracks. In this photo, we're looking east from Dundas St. over the tracks.

Sometime after this photo was taken, an underpass was built to eliminate this level railway crossing at the edge of our neighbourhood.

Here is another photo with a similar view from 1914.

Photo is from the City of Toronto Archives.
