Purity Flour employees, Toronto, 1945

As with anything in life, it's the people that matter, so as well as photos of trains and Purity Flour's railroad operations, my uncle shot some photos of the people that made Purity Flour run.

His annotations accompanying these photos note that they were taken "Opposite 287 MacPherson Avenue, Toronto. February, 1945."

This being the age of Google Streetviews, here's what that street scene looks like circa June 2013.
That building on the left is the one my uncle used as the background for these photos. It looks much the same as it did back then.
