Bay Street looking north from Queen's Quay, Toronto
Spadina Crescent looking north from College St. with the former "Knox College" (built in 1875) in the background. The building now houses the Fine Arts Department of the University of Toronto.
PCC Streetcar Number 4500 on College Street pulling away from Spadina Avenue.
The "PCC" streetcars were built from 1938-1951 and were used in many North American cities. At one point Toronto had the largest fleet of PCC's of any city in North America! These streetcars saw service well into the 1990's. Number 4500 is the only one remaining in service and is used for tourist charters. Boston, San Francisco and Philadelphia still have some PCC's in regular service.

The Fireboat "William Lyon Mackenzie" on Toronto Harbour
William Lyon Mackenzie outraged the establishment as publisher of the "Colonial Advocate" in the early 19th Century, was elected Toronto's first mayor in 1834 and later went on to lead the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837 against British control of Canada. It's only fitting that a "Fireboat" be named after this firey leader!
