The L&PS freight shed in London was a hive of activity in the 1920s. Shipments of all types passed through this facility on their way to destinations across Canada and the US.

The structure's location between the CN and L&PS tracks, provided excellent train watching opportunities. Here, a pair of CN mountain type locomotives rumble across Colborne eastbound towards Toronto.

Eventually, the demand for LCL freight services declined and the structure was leased out to the Canadian Dominion Sugar company. In 1984, now owned by the CN, the building served as their equipment shop until sometime around 1999, when it was demolished.
