Streetcar 740





Streetcar 740

A new streetcar was found, this one a steel body car from the Ottawa Car Company, part of a 20 car order in 1919. These cars served well until retirement in 1955. This farm originally had 2 Streetcars, the other one was removed a long time ago.

This car was originally number 700, but due to some accidents and superstition, was renamed to 740 in the 1930’s.

A great picture of Winnipeg, looking West on Portage, with all the Streetcars and traffic.

I”m not sure what era this might be, the 1920’s or 30’s? In the Original size you can see a “Metropolitan Theatre” advertisement on the back of the building which says “Talking Pictures” but that could have been up for awhile.

However, I’ve counted 28 Streetcars in this one picture.
