Description: This photo taken March 1979 shows the route that the Toronto Suburban Railway took through the Carr Farm at Conc 2 NDS, Lot 16, at the northwest corner of Hurontario Street and Burnhamthorpe Road West. In the 1877 Historical Atlas of Peel County this property was owned by Charles Wilcox. In 1926 it was acquired by Robert Norman Carr and his wife, the former Mary Alice Hawkins. The Carr family was involved in mixed farming, primarily dairy. The Toronto Suburban Railway went through the farm. In 1960 the farm was sold to S. B. McLaughlin and the buildings on it demolished. It is now the site of Square One Shopping Centre.
