Now here is an institution that exhisted for a long period of time in the first half of the 20th century judging from the maps I consulted. Here is a 1932 map showing the club in all its glory. Notice the large area of the buildings wich contained plenty of storage space for the boats, a restaurant and also had a separate building for the Grand Trunk Canoe Club. It is also interesting to note that the club was situated mostly in Verdun but also partly in Pte St Charles. Also you can notice that Elmhurst Dairy had a building at the lower left of lot 5371. On the upper left of the same lot was situated a skating ring and camping grounds, no doubt where the Verdun Tourist Camp was situated. The camp was well situated as the campers could go to the boat club to get their boat or rent one. I think you can enlarge the photo to discover other interesting buildings. I guess there aren't many old timers around who could give us some interesting stories about the Grand Trunk Boating club. I would like to learn more about this subject which would make an interesting article and who knows, maybe other photos may turn up. After consulting several maps from different eras, River street had several names such as Gough, Kings Park, Atwater, Upsala and is presently called Henri Duhamel.
