Streetcar Ghosts

These photos come courtesy of regular reader Urbanrat, who in his travels stumbled across unearthed streetcar tracks in Ouelllette Aveune.

As you know the next round of streetscaping is underway along Ouellette, and apparently some old rail infrastructure reappeared after being hidden since the the streetcars went away in 1938.

So after 70 years, a brief resurfacing for what was our primary mode of public transit.

Sometimes, for all our “progress” it’s nice to see how far we’ve actually regressed.

Thanks for the photos Urbanrat.
