Soldiers from Toronto shipping out to fight in WWI. These young men are getting ready to catch a train on the old Grand Trunk Railway at the Exhibition Park station, in 1915. Many did not return. In the First World War alone, there were more than 37 million military and civilian casualties. How will you remember them?
