It only applies to two of them, but one of my all-time favourite genres of transportation related archival photo has to be the Ontario-Prime-Minister-Enjoying-Subway-Opening.1The Premier of Ontario was styled “Prime Minister” by Leslie Frost and John Robarts. Bill Davis changed it back to “Premier” when he took over the Pink Palace’s big chair in 1971. Fun fact: Bill Davis is the only Premier I’ve ever met.
As a bonus, here’s Bill Davis in a double-exposure opening the Spadina Line extension in 1978.
