Notes
The Michigan Central Railway Station, built 1886-7, was situated on the south-east corner of Clarence and Bathurst Streets. It was designed by F. H. Spier, a famous Detroit architect (source: "Canadian Rail Passenger Review Vol 1" p.65).
The first Michigan Central passenger train pulled into the station on September 12, 1887 (London Free Press, Monday, September 12, 1887 p.3 c.4) and the last train pulled out on June 30, 1915. The station was demolished in 1937.
The inscription, not seen on the digital copy, was added to the original photograph in 1939.
