At the start of the First World War in 1914 there were already 48 Canadian cities and towns with electric streetcars. The first intercity railway opened in St. Catharines in 1887.
Toronto streetcars began operating in 1890 and they are still running.
Peterborough, above, also had a street railway. It operated from 1893 to 1897 and then from 1904 to 1928. The streetcar is seen on George Street looking north from Charlotte Street when the city had a population of 21,000.
