Beelitz

History: 

A complex of over 60 buildings, Beelitz-Heilstatten began life as a sanatorium in 1898. By World War I, however, it became a military hospital for the Imperial German Army, and would have the dubious distinction of treating a young Adolph Hitler in October and November of 1916 when wounded during the Battle of the Somme.

Lower Queen Streetcar Station

History: 

This was intended to allow TTC streetcars to run the length of Queen Street, but keep them underground, thereby reducing traffic. It was to run from Trinity Park in the west to Carlaw Avenue in the east.

Digging was already being done for the Queen Subway Station on the Yonge line, so it was decided to excavate the intended streetcar station at the same time.
