TTC PCC 4357 (A6-class, built by CC&F in 1947-48) ambles eastbound on Dundas Street past Yonge, through a track work construction zone and passing an old Gradall G1000 telescopic boom excavator. On the right is the Brown Derby Tavern, recently closed and soon to be rebuilt to house multiple retail outlets. Not sure what "Jugs and Mugs" in the "San Francisco Room" refers to, but it's likely something seedy, as were many establishments along Yonge Street back in the day.

  1. My goodness; the old Brown Derby !!! Now that takes me back. Ooops! I see there is a TTC vehicle in the shot too…coming up alongside what looks like a ’73 Ford Custom.

  2. looks like a mighty fine watering hole indeed.
