The station fed lunch to 600 or more workers in the cafeteria. Hydro hired most workers at a young age and there were a lot of immigrants including German DP's who were still working there when the station closed. I had arrived in Toronto the year before from New Brunswick with a suitcase and $45. I bought may first car when I was there and
gained my qualifying time as a 3rd class engineer.
The cafeteria fed 600 or so in the 1960's. Mydro hired many workers to train from other stations which is one reason why there were so many. It was considered a great hands on training station and many workers would go on to work at Pickering and BNPD. By the time I arrived in 1982 there was a staff of about 175 and the cafeteria was closed.
