Curiosity led me one day years ago to visit the archives to learn more about Hounslow Heath R., the street I grew up on in the 50/60/70 era. Construction of homes began on the south side close to Laughton Ave. about 1912 or so and it progressed west and north to St. Clair before finally beginning on the north side of the street. The street plan was available and it gave a hint as to why the street did not follow the typical Toronto grid. The plan revealed a proposed railway (Northern Railway), which ran a diagonal from Caledonia and Davenport Rd. to Keele St. and St. Clair. I believe there were train stations at both of these locations. The proposed railway would run exactly parallel with the back laneway on the south side of the street. For whatever reason, the railway was never built and a park was granted in it’s place. Osler School built in 1962, took over most of the park for a running track.
