    Great footage. Watching the pedestrians in particular amidst the clamour of the rolling stock charging through intersections made me think that essentially little has changed. Fabulous to see all those familiar street corners through a period lens. Wish there was more of this out there.

  2. Wow! Being a streetcar fan – especially the TCC – this is an amazing video. Thanks for posting.

    This is fascinating. I was born on Garden Ave. near Roncesvalles in 1935 and remember a lot of these locations. Especially King, Queen & Roncesvalles corner.
