McMaster University Campus, 1947

This 1947 photograph shows what the McMaster University campus looked like before a building boom took place on the campus. Main St. run across the bottom of the photograph and King St. can be seen going part way through the campus. The Sunken Garden can be seen to the left, in a location that is now home to the McMaster Medical Centre.

Popular summer park

The Beach Amusement Park attracted a lot of visitors as shown in this July, 1958 photograph. As the Skyway Bridge had not yet opened, most of the traffic on the Toronto-Niagara route was diverted along the beach.

Beach Amusement Park

It's an empty field today, but for many years the Beach Amusement Park was located in this spot next to the Skyway Bridge in Burlington.
