Description
A family plays in the Thames River with a train and C.P.R. station in the background. The old C.P.R. station was located on Water Street along what is now the Riverview Walkway. The station was built in 1913 and was complete with ticket and freight offices, waiting rooms and telegraph service. It was built for the Canadian Pacific Railroad, which was heavily used by the stone quarries and flour mill in St. Marys. The station was torn down in 1980, and the Canadian Pacific Railroad line was transformed into the Riverview Walkway.
