Vintage Photographs of Transportation Vehicles in Toronto

I was browsing the Toronto archives for photos of old TTC and transportation vehicles from Toronto’s past and decided to share a few of them. I love checking out the scenes of the images as well as the many different designs for streetcars and subway cars. The clothing of the people in the photos, the advertisements on the wall, as well as the architecture and landscape of the surrounding areas show us so much what life was like at the times these photos were taken.

Here are a few of my favourites.
