King Street 1913

For those who despair of ever getting on the King car, here is a cartoon from the Toronto Star in 1913 by Jimmy Frise. Thanks to Mike Filey for passing this along.

  1. Hey Steve they need to bring back the back porch on streetcars. Looks like you can get an extra 20 people on that way.


  2. The main difference between now and 1913, there were conductors who collected the fares, and the driver only drove. Also, today, traffic signals and traffic congestion slows the speed of streetcars.

  3. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

    I wonder how long after the LFLRVs are introduced before we will be back to this again.
