Sunnyside has long been known for many things besides
its railway station.
In fact, the TTC was, and still is, far more significant with its Roncesvalles
Divison car barn handling a number of streetcar routes including; King
and Queen operating past Sunnyside along with Carlton, Dundas and Long
Branch.. The street intersection was a very complicated arrangement
with streetcars tracks connecting at all five points. The Five Points
(four remain) intersection of Roncesvalles Avenue, King Street, Queen
Street, The Queensway and Lake Shore Blvd. (This latter intersection
was eliminated with the construction of the Gardiner Expressway which
opened between the Humber River and Jameson Avenue in Parkdale on August
