McCaul Street 0100


This photo was taken by my father's friend, David Miller. The picture dates from the 1960s and is of the McCaul/Dundas intersection. This seems a good picture to start with in giving a brief history of McCaul's trackage. The last time McCaul Street featured regular service was in the 1930s, when College and Harbord Cars ran from College to Dundas, on their way to other points in the city. My father remembers boarding Harbord cars at Baldwin Street in the late 1950s, but this was likely a route diversion. Today, only a stub of McCaul Street sees regular service in the form of 502's short jaunt to McCaul Loop inside the Village by the Grange. The track remains in place for diversions and short turns.

The vehicle you're seeing in the centre of the picture, by the way, is a TTC snowsweeper. No such vehicles are in the TTC's service, now that Metro Roads handles all of the snow removal tasks.
