The old Toronto Star building at 80 King Street West in the 1960s. This Art Deco building stood there from 1929-1972 before being demolished to make way for The First Canadian Place building. The building was the inspiration for Superman comic’s “The Daily Planet” building. Cartoonist, Joe Shuster, worked at the Star as a child as a paperboy. In the comic series the “Daily Planet” was originally named the “Daily Star” after this same paper. Ernest Hemingway, while working at the Star, wrote an article entitled “The Super-man Myth” in 1921, albeit in the previous Star building.

Nineteen scarlett roses the chaplin spread around
In the waters of Berard Inlet in old Vancouver town
When the bridge came tumbling down
When the bridge came tumbling down
Nineteen men were drowned in June of 1958
In old Vancouver town
There were seventy-nine men working
To build this brand new bridge
To span the second and narrows
And connect up with the ridge
Till a big wind hit the bridge
And the bridge came tumbling down
And nineteen men were drowned
The medical corp couldn't be too sure of the rest of the men they found
In among the twisted girders one man realized
How last night he'd been dreaming and saw before his eyes
The big wind on the rise
And the bridge came tumbling down
And nineteen steelmen drowned, and he saw the fright of the darkest night
In old Vancouver town
With frogmen in the water by the cutting torches glow
They fought to save the steelmen
From certain death below and pain we'll never know
When the bridge came tumbling down
And nineteen men were drowned, and sixty more that came ashore
So thankful they were found
It often makes you wonder
In strength who has the edge
The longest steel beam structure
That spans the highest ridge
For the men that built the bridge
For the bridge came tumbling down
And nineteen men were drowned
But the other men came back again
To lay the new beams down
Now if your ever crossing
This mighty bridge sublime
And nineteen scarlett roses pass before your mind
Remember and be kind
The bridge came tumbling down
Ansd nineteen men were drowned
So you could ride to the other side
Of old Vancouver town
So you could ride to the other side
Of old Vancouver town

It's Wintertime and the weather's fine
The snow on the woods and fields when I reveal... my snowmobile
Thrill by thrill by golly n' hill
Baby it'll make ya feel like an outdoor meal...
On a snowmobile
-Up
Listen to the sound when the belts go round '
When the winter carnival's here...
And oh what fun at the crack of the gun
When the whole gang disappears...
Verse
The race is on from the bush to the pond
And back where the judges's feel you've won their seal...
For the snowmobile
You've won their seal... for the snowmobile
Where skier's ski, and skater's pee and snowshoes lend appeal
Like a bogie wheel, ... On a snowmobile
We tip the glass to the northern lass for she won't let ya kneel
She'd rather squeal -...on a snowmobile
-Up-
You're off to the town where the word goes round
It's winter carnival time
In goggles, boots, and a snowproof suit Your sweethearts on your mind
Ya win the race and you see her face and you know that she must feel
You've got a real... good snowmobile- repeat
Now down the street U can hear the beat & the clickin of the dancer's heel
When the fiddler's peel... off a ragtime reel
You dance and tear with an "I don't care
On the way back home you'll wheel-over hill and field -On a snowmobile
Up-
Through the golden glow on powdered snow
When the moon comes rolling along
On a homeward trail U can hear the wail of the whole gang singing a song.
If tomorrow's clear with fishin gear
We'll head for a lake trout meal With a rod and a reel-and a snowmobile
Life can be real with a snowmobile There ain't no deal like a snowmobile
