Street Cars and Vehicles in the Downtown District of Toronto

Format: 24 x 36 inches
If you spent most Friday nights cruising through arcane U of T Map & Data Library websites about the comings of goings of the Toronto Civic Transportation Committee circa 1915, you’d maybe find a yellowed and bent version of this beautiful pre-information age infographic. I did, and I’ve whitened the paper, cleaned it up, and straightened the bends, and what was once a utilitarian chart is now a utopia of organic forms (Queen’s Park) and Mondrianesque gridded lattice (everything else). We’re the only people who’ve seen this in a long, long, time. Dimensions of this print reproduction include a half-inch margin.
