Notes:

Original notes from collector: College and Yonge Sts. Showing the old tollgate. This was taken after a heavy snowstorm. The sign at the left warns against digging and the committing of nuisances. This was the year of the Riel Rebellion. Winnipeg was still Fort Garry. On November 9th of this year, the last spike (Supposedly a golden one) was driven in the C.P.R. line, thus uniting Montreal and Vancouver with 2,905 miles of steel rails. Photographer: Unknown
