Tunnel Vision: The Story of Toronto’s Subway

The Market Gallery presents the exhibition "Tunnel Vision: The Story of Toronto’s Subway" in partnership with the Toronto Transportation Society. The exhibition will highlight the building of Toronto's subway system using photographs, maps and artifacts, and will explore the complexity and massive scale of Toronto's subway's operation.

Toronto’s subway system is much more than a few lines on a map or a list of numbers on a spread sheet.  Every day for over 60 years, it has been the backbone of this city and has moved billions of passengers.  The exhibit focuses on the enormous effort that it takes to keep the subway rolling, enabling visitors to better appreciate the vital role played by rapid transit in Toronto.

The exhibition runs from February 13 to June 11, 2016.
