Dovercourt Subway/ThenLooking north up Dovercourt from Dupont in 1911 at the level crossing.

The same view 4 years later as the subway nears completion. It certainly seems that Toronto was able to accomplish a lot of public works projects within a short period of time with simple tools and manpower back then. I wonder why we can’t do the same thing today. The roadwork on Roncesvalles has taken forever and still not finished. In addition the pavement is a mess of potholes and patches, clearly a hazard for pedestrians and cyclists.
