Fridays when families gathered in the auditorium of the Recreation Building to watch motion pictures or musicals by employees in the Kodak Theatre Company.
Christmas parties where kids who were 10 finally got a camera. The building’s gym with its wood slat floors and painted shuffle board courts; the darkroom for photo buffs, the locker room for athletes.
The building was at the heart of Kodak Heights, the 23-hectare factory that employed thousands of people until it closed in 2005.
Today, the recreation building is the only one still standing.
The tunnel boring machines that will carve out the Crosstown LRT are about to rumble through the earth under Eglinton Ave. W.
And that means the deserted Kodak lands in Weston-Mount Dennis will spring to life in the next couple of years.
