pavilionlooking west towards Orillia along former MRC track—connection to former N.Ry.C. track passes behind station to right. Freight shed appears on left. The C.P.Ry.'s G.B. & S.Ry. bridge across the Narrows may appear in the background, which dates the photograph to after ca. 1910 but before ca. 1920 when the GTR added the Agent's Office to the north façade. The station's paint scheme is a
faux wainscotthat GTR appears to have adopted in an attempt to create a uniform
corporate imageamong its stations.
