Another view of TTC PCC 4545, likely on the same warm Summer's day as this one, operating on the St. Clair route. This time, 4545 is seen waiting in traffic northbound on Mount Pleasant Avenue at Manor Avenue, on the trip up to Eglinton Loop.

The advertisement on the side of 4545 is for the new Galleria Shopping Centre's grand opening on August 15th, 1972 (closed in 2019). Some of the stores visible in the background are the Silver Moon (Chinese & Polynesian Food), Pleasant Smoke Shop, Pleasant Hardware (Home Hardware franchise?), Lobster Gourmet and Imperial Jewellers. The "Central cooling" ad in the background is advertising Coca Cola as as solution to the heat). Much of this two-story block of stores is still intact today, although streetcar service on Mount Pleasant ended a few years later in late July 1976.

Original photographer unknown (possibly a John H. Eagle photo), Dan Dell'Unto collection slide.
