510 Spadina 197308

 

Following Streetcars for Toronto Committee's success in convincing the TTC to abandon its streetcar abandonment policy, the grassroots organization encouraged the TTC to restore streetcar service on Spadina Avenue. One question that had to be tackled was: where would the cars loop? One option called for a single track to be laid down Charlotte Street from Adelaide to King, as shown by this plan drawn for the TTC in August 1973. Charlotte Loop would open in March 1999, almost two years after the launch of the 510 SPADINA route. Image courtesy Steve Munro.
