I worked here from April '74 to Thanksgiving '75 when I transferred to the Toronto Intl Airport office. My office was on the main floor to the right of the front entrance door. At the time I worked there, it was owned by Direct Systems. Their Toronto terminal was at the back of the building. Most bonded carriers had a door or two at Interport back then. It was a secondary bond shed to MidCon. Doug McKenzie hauled some containers and piggybacks in there, but mostly to Midcon. He was with Laidlaw. There was also a bond shed in the east end of the city, Toronto Sufferance Truck Terminals See the Autocar shot in Doug's Laidlaw collection. It was taken there. TSTT was built by Maislin and was then bought by Yellow. Interport was known as Toronto-Dixie Bond, and TSTT was known as Toronto-Kennedy Road from the roads they were located on.
