Every once in a while - someone says something like "I hear there are a bunch of old tunnels in your area. Something that dates back to the second World War?"
Yes indeedy - there are old tunnels underground here - from a munitions factory that was located in the Warden and Eglinton area. The tunnels were for moving ammunition safely out of sight, and as a potential bomb shelter for employees. The company was the General Engineering Company of Ontario, and there are oodles of details and photos collected by Barbara Dickson in the course of researching her novels. There's a map of the area and collected storied about the lives of the women and men that worked there. Thousands of people worked there.
Our very own Rosemary has seen these tunnels and reports that they are in amazingly good condition!
Way cool piece of history, eh?
