In the spring of 1973 Toronto was hit by a severe storm. Impressed by the devastation, Beach resident Joe Davis rushed out to capture this image of the Donald D. Summerville pool. As evidenced by this photograph, a huge swath of the boardwalk was destroyed by the pounding water. Thank you, Joe, for sharing this amazing image.
