THE OPEN GATE
TORONTO UNION STATION
        Edited by Richard Bebout Original photographs by John Taylor
        Peter Martin Associates, Toronto 1972
        ISBN 0-88778-072-5 Images were made during Taylor's second year at Ryerson. Collaborators include Anthony Adamson, Pierre Berton, Ron Haggart, Robert McMann, John Robert Colombo, Douglas Richardson, William Kilbourn. The book was a best seller and proceeds funded the Union Station Committee who challenged CNR to stand down after the CN Tower was poured, thus succeeding in saving the train station from demolition.
        Exhibited at Toronto City Hall, the entire portfolio of photographs was purchased by Ontario Arts Council and circulated throughout Ontario as an example to communities to save their heritage. Negatives and work prints were purchased by Archives Canada, the John C. Taylor collection. Taylor was awarded the Ontario Arts Council materials grant.
