Honey, what's that weird buzzing sound?

During the 50s and 60s, Toronto Hydro disguised some of their neighbourhood substations as bungalows. That's right - those reclusive next door neighbours you may never have seen were quiet for a reason. THEY DON'T EXIST.

Check out BLDGBLOG for the full stories and some excellent photos. I love the idea that these buildings are Toronto Hydro's idea of generic, blend-in-able Canadiana, and I would REALLY love to know what the actual neighbours thought/think.

Check here for an address list of all the houses in the GTA (scroll down to "Schedule C"). Road-trip, anyone?
