The east-end of Saint Patrick Street was dismantled when the authorities decided that this area was ready for urban renewal in the 1960s.

The archival photo was taken in the 1950's when streetcars were still running on St. Patrick Street as the tracks in the road reveal.

At the time photo was taken, The people who used to live at 642 St. Patrick seem to be moving using a horse and a carriage which proves that access to a motorized vehicle in the 1950's was not universal.

J'ai plutôt une question qu'un commentaire.
Mon frère faisant de la plongée sous le pont de la rue Sussex, a trouvé ce qui semble être des badges de casquette de la compagny de tramway Ottawa electric railroad co..

Sur l'une d'elle est inscrit:
O.E.Ry. co.
98 MOTORMAN

tandis que sur l'autre:
O.E.Ry. co.
71 CONDUCTOR.

J'aimerais savoir si:
-il eu accident de tramway dans cette rivière à l'époque?
-Si oui, le est-il possible de connaitre le nom et le sort des employés portant ces badges?

Merci.

ps. Votre site est vraiment intéressant avec vos photos du même point de vue.
