~~Streetcars to another world

Thank you for Sheila Gostick’s lovely paean to Toronto streetcars (NOW, September 19-25). These vehicles excite in part because they bring us to nature – not just to Lake Simcoe, as Gostick mentions they used to, but to High Park today.

The Carlton car takes riders from the subway to Carolinian forest, a black oak savannah. The now defunct short-turn at St. Clair and Mt. Pleasant passed through a little wood.

Even the downtown loop on Bathurst north of Queen has its patch of grass, a fine tree and bushes. This is transportation from one world to another.
