About this title


Ottawa’s Streetcars was authored by Ottawa native Bill McKeown, after over fifty years of research. It details the history of the Ottawa Electric Railway, its predecessors, and the Ottawa Transportation Commission, all forerunners of today’s OC Transpo.The book contains 256 pages, with over 300 historical photographs in large size–larger than post-card size, for more interesting detail–with more than 40 photos in full colour.

· Details the history of the Ottawa Electric Railway, its predecessors, and the Ottawa Transportation Commission.

· A magnificent historical record of Ottawa as it was at the end of the 19th and during the first half of the 20th centuries.

· A dozen appendices include coverage of the new O-Train, the restoration of OTC Streetcar 696, bibliography, trackage history, recollections from a retired motorman, and much more.

· Ten city, trackage, and route maps including a large 1929 route map in full colour.

· Extensively detailed 19-page roster of passenger and work equipment.

“I must say that this is a most attractive book. In fact it is shaping one of the best local streetcar histories I have ever seen. And as the onetime owner of Interurban Press, I published quite a few such books myself! The author has a lively writing style and shows diligent research. And that jacket – absolutely marvellous. Red is my favorite color for streetcars.”

— G. Mac Sebree, Vancouver, Washington
