The dig, adjacent to the Bathurst Street bridge south of Front Street, uncovered the foundations of part of a giant cruciform-shaped building that in the 1850s housed the steam engine service and repair facilities of the Grand Trunk Railway. It also revealed some remaining portions of the Queen’s Wharf – a massive wooden dock that jutted into Lake Ontario – and a wood-lined channel that directed the flow of now-defunct Garrison Creek to the waterfront.
