From the Border Cities Star – May 6, 1930:
- This sketch shows the manner in which the Dougall Avenue subway under the M.C.R. will be widened in accordance with an order of the Board of Railway Commissioners. The section on the left is the present subway. The present eastern abutment will be cut down to form a pier, and a new abutment will be built 30 feet to the east, forming two 30-foot roadways, with a centre pier between.
Here’s the same bridge today. The western half is the original, while the eastern half is the “new” section built in 1930.
Thank you to everyone who’s placed orders already. Once the pre-sale period closes, I’ll be in touch.
