Montreal Streetcars 1900

 

Two PCCs on 25th Avenue in the Rosemont district of Montreal. This was the eastern loop of the 54-Rosemont line which saw cars turn off of Rosemont Boulevard north on to 26th Avenue, west on Bellechasse, and then south on 25th Avenue. The street is now one way north. Route 54 was one of the last surviving tram lines within the limits of the City of Montreal (closed at the same time as the closure of the streetcar system as a whole: August 30, 1959) as evidanced by the use of PCCs. The development of this now heavily populated neighbourhood is due in part, no doubt, to the original expansion of the tramway system outside of the downtown core. The loop was opened in 1933.
