A 1970 Pontiac Grand Prix cruises by some small businesses that lined the street as TTC PCC 4528 passes southbound on the short-lived Mount Pleasant streetcar route during its final week of operation in July 1976. A TTC line truck for overhead work is visible waiting at the light at Manor Road, and beyond that signage for the Crest Theatre. A car nearby sports a yellow "City" plate on back (taxi?). The blue and white AMC Gremlin on the right may have been owned by Bryce (a similar one was seen in some of his other photos).

In the final year of streetcar service on Mount Pleasant Road, the Mount Pleasant portion of the St. Clair streetcar that ran between St. Clair subway station and Eglinton Loop (Eglinton/Mount Pleasant) was separated into its own route, the Mount Pleasant streetcar, that operated until it was discontinued at the end of July 1976.

  1. The “City” plate refers to a driving school if I remember correctly.

  2. That Gremlin was certainly Bryce’s. I was a good friend of Bryce.My father and his mother went to school together

  3. At one point there was 3 of us had Gremlins. Myself, Bryce and one person that was a friend of Bryce’s. Mine was dark green with a gold hockey stripe.

  4. They must have been popular models! I’ve seen photos of them loaded on auto racks at the AMC plant in Brampton (it appears Brampton made them for a period back in the 70’s, among other AMC products).

  5. Mr.Dan;yes Brampton did build Gremlins and Hornets.I worked for an AMC dealership between 1974 and 1975,then went to VW.
