Construction of the R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant began in 1932. This photograph was taken a year after the first shovel went into the ground. It took nine years to complete and in 1992 the facility was declared a national historic engineering site. This view point is looking north to Queen Street, close to where Victoria Park Avenue begins. Do you have an old photograph you’d like to share? Please call me at 416-691-4774.
