Relive memories of Toronto’s vibrant waterfront at Toronto on the Water. There’s a Diving Horse at Hanlan’s Point in 1907 and demure bathing beauties at Ward’s Island in 1908. Workers dig industrial foundations in 1917 in the seemingly ever-growing Portlands. In 1920, iceboats sit in a frozen bay that is now dominated by the Toronto Harbour Commission. Always a sports town, in 1926 baseball fans converge on Maple Leaf Stadium on the Bathurst Street flats. In 1929, the Fairmont Royal York reigns briefly as the highest building on the Toronto skyline. By the 1930s, the new Terminal Warehouse dominates the waterfront. Now Queen’s Quay Terminal, the building with its stately pillars is a virtual ’World Under One Roof’, controlling everything from shipping and warehousing to distribution and merchandising.
