69 TTC Subway Station tour

Apparently there is someone trying to visit all 69 Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) subway stations. Not only that, but to take pictures of each and every one of those 69 stations.

Other people have tried getting transfers from each and every one of the subway stations before. But taking pictures over one summer of each of the subway stations is something I have never heard of before.

Imagine trying to do either the photo feat in New York City's subway system of over 400 hundred stations. Has anyone tried to do this? Transfers in New York you question? Sorry, the New York City Subway system does not provide transfers like those of the Toronto Subway System.

I remember when I was in my childhood my entire family road the entire Toronto Subway System end to end in one day. We started at Yorkdale (on the University line) and headed north to Wilson (Downsview Station didn't exist back then) and then back south around Union Station and north to Finch (on the Yonge line). Next we headed south to the Bloor-Danforth line and then east to the Scarborough RT to have lunch at Scarborough Town Centre's food court. Then we worked our way westward to the Kipling Station. Somehow, along the way, we worked in the Lakeshore LRT line as well. It was a long day!
