Exterior view of the Y.M.C.A. building on the southeast corner of Talbot and Ross Streets, St. Thomas, ca. 1915.

The Michigan Central Railway Station, now known as the historic Canada Southern Railway (CASO) Station, is also visible at left. The Y.M.C.A. building was constructed in 1914. The Ross Street Subway was built in 1908 by the Michigan Central Railway and demolished in May, 2014. Note the brick surfacing on Talbot Street - bricks were removed in 1915 when the street was paved.

View of the exterior of the Y.M.C.A. building on the southeast corner of Talbot and Ross Streets, St. Thomas, looking southeast. The building was constructed in 1914, and the rough landscaping around the building suggests that this photograph was taken soon after construction was completed. The Michigan Central Railway underpass or subway on Ross Street (constructed 1908, demolished in May, 2014) is visible in the background, as is a St. Thomas Street Railway car on Ross Street in the far background. Michigan Central Railway Park is partially visible to the east (left) of the Y.M.C.A. building. The cornerstone for the Y.M.C.A. building is visible, but not legible: the stone was laid by H.R.H. Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, Governor General of Canada, 1911-1916, during a ceremony held May 6, 1914. Note the street railway tracks running along Talbot Street in front of the building as well as south on Ross Street, and the numerous bicycles left propped against the Talbot Street curb in front of the Y.M.C.A. Horse dung is visible, deposited by the many horse-drawn vehicles operating in the city at the time. The Y.M.C.A. building was demolished in 1990.
Down the Street to Yesterday Zone 15 (Ross to opposite Horton).

Scope and Content
A large group of children in a playground adjacent to the YMCA, St. Thomas, ca. 1915. The Michigan Central Railway Station (now the Canada Southern Railway Station or CASO Station) and yards are visible in the near background, with the MCR shops buildings partially visible in the far background. View is looking east. The photographer's shadow can be seen in the lower left hand corner of the image - he appears to be standing on the portico of an entrance on the east side of the YMCA building (built in 1914). There appear to be eight chimneys on the railway station building - one of the original chimneys was removed following a fire, ca. 1920. This image was taken at the same time and shows the same scene as Scott Studio file 534_95398.
