North Yonge 02 York Mills 1969


This Toronto Archives image shows a model of an early proposal for York Mills station. The image looks south, with Yonge Street on the left. As you can see, the subway would emerge from the side of the valley, cross York Mills and the Don River over a bridge, before diving back underground by Highway 401. York Mills station would have resembled Old Mill. Residents at the nearby Armour Heights neighbourhood objected, saying the "noise pollution" would adversely affect property values, even with Highway 401 already in place.
