Description:
This black and white photograph features the Grimsby Beach railroad station. The long extension for farmers' produce shoots off down the left side of the photograph, extending beyond the frame of the photograph. There is an empty cart in the background, probably used for hauling produce to the station. In the foreground, there are four people, two men and two women, posing on the station platform.
Notes:
The sign beside the ticket window reads, the Canadian Express Co. This company was part of the Canadian Pacific Railway and came into existence in 1926. While this photograph was taken circa 1930, the railway station came into existence with the help of the Grand Trunk Railway Company of Canada. Many visitors to Grimsby Park came by way of this railway. The entrance gate to the park was located only a short walk northwest onto Grand Avenue.
