About Stamp

Electric streetcars were developed in the 1890s, replacing the horse-pulled tramcars. Saint John began modernizing its system in 1894 and placed an order for streetcars from the Ottawa Car Company. Car #40 was included in the second shipment and remained in service for 25 years. The Ottawa company ceased production in 1947 when most cities abandoned trams in favour of buses. Today, Toronto has the only regular streetcar service in Canada.
