Original renderings of TTC subway stations
I came across these renderings yesterday while putting together my photo survey of 1950s Toronto. They're a part of the Toronto Archives Yonge Street Subway construction views collection, and I love the idealistic little glimpse they offer of yet-to-be built subway line. It's particularly fascinating to gauge how much (and how little) the stations have changed over the years.
Here are the stations I could find, with a little identification challenge at the end.
Exterior Eglinton Station
(remember the old bus terminals?)
Queen Street Mezzanine
Bloor Station (no Yonge Station underneath)
And how about a little challenge on the last, unlabeled rendering: which station does this represent? There are a bunch of clues to give it away, but I'll let a commenter take the honours.
