London Street Car Barns

Happy April Fool’s Day! To celebrate we’ll carry on the railroad photos for one last Friday (but don’t get too excited, this is the last one in the set I came across).

While we’ve seen many photos on this site over the years of the old Car Barns, this is the first one I’ve seen that had a good view of the old Cameron Ave. School, which was eventually replaced with Alicia Mason School.

Both the school building and car barns were designed by the same architect, James G. McLean. I have the barns listed as being built in 1891, and the school in 1895.

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday!
