Description:
This image is one in a series of postcards from the Reg Near collection. The Junction Station was built in 1858 from locally quarried limestone and was operational until January 1941 when the CNR terminated the building’s public function. At its pinnacle of activity in the 1860s and 70s, the Junction saw three trains a day each way to and from London and the same number on the line between Sarnia and Toronto. In 1965 the CNR announced its plans to demolish the Junction, resulting in a public outcry for the preservation and eventual restoration of this historic building. In 1979 the Parks and Monuments Board of the Department of Canadian Heritage officially recognized it as a nationally significant historic site.
