Taken 99 years ago almost to the day (May 8, 1915), this photograph of Forest Hill is attributed to Stuart Logan Thompson (1885-1961). It looks north from the intersection of Bathurst Street and Lonsmount Drive, just north of St. Clair. The wooden bridge and the wooden sidewalks along the dirt road have long been replaced, and the area now has a distinctly residential flavour.

Toronto Street from King-1910

This Toronto street, Toronto Street, is mostly just shit buildings. Most of these beautiful buildings are gone.

Toronto Railway Company (a predecessor to the TTC) 1893. Electric Streetcars began in 1890's & moved so fast & quiet compared to horse-drawn vehicles, accident rate shot up as people didn't know to look both ways. Life saving fenders at the front of electric cars with an iron bar to knock a pedestrian off his feet and into the net. A gentleman reclines in the net in the pic.

A visual history of Toronto streetcars struck me as the perfect choice for my Friday archive dive after getting a chance to ride around on a Toront.
