Transit Toronto Streetcar Pages
It’s spring, and the cherry blossoms are blooming in High Park. Photographer Benny Cheung was sure to mention that when he submitted this photograph, which he took on the same day. Apparently, after seeing the cherry blossoms, he headed south to the Queensway and snapped CLRV 4029 heading westbound at just the right moment of dusk to be caught in this memorable photograph, which I’ve made our feature. Thanks, Benny!
We have a few new things on these pages. We’ve reorganized the PCC pages of our streetcar field guide to include a number of vintage photographs which are new to this site. We have a new history of the YONGE streetcar line and an article on the interurban railways that served Yonge Street north of Toronto. And as the next generation of TTC streetcars rolls onto the streets of Toronto, ahead of their entering service in 2014, look for photos and videos to appear on this site as well.
