Black and white negative depicting a photograph of the Ontario Hospital Workers gathered at Whitby Junction Station prior to leaving for service in the Second World War. Most of the men appear to be seated on a grand stand. There is a large Union Jack flag in the background.
Notes
The Whitby Junction station stood at the site of the east end of the present Go Transit platform from 1903 to February 1970 when it was moved to the corner of Victoria and Henry Streets. It was moved across the road to Iroquois Park in October 2004. The men in the photograph were the first group of volunteers to leave for overseas service.
