    I should have mentioned this addition to the original caption on the 'Then' photo - " towards Glen Rd. south bridge."

    Looks like a fresh streetcar track rebuild in the "then" photo (when did they start using concrete bases? was it for the pending CLRV cars?)

    They actually started using concrete as early as 1969. Before that it was mostly asphalt replacing, or over top of the granite setts. The trackwork done in the 1980s was notoriously cheap (just new rails on top of old or untreated ties) and was totally falling apart by the late 1990s and early 2000s.
