This group photo of the Street Railway Department was taken outside Yorkville Town Hall on the west side of Yonge at Collier Ave. In the background you can see a horse-drawn streetcar (with roof advertising) and a gas streetlamp. There are five barefoot boys, a farrier and at least one Asian man in the photo from 1870s Toronto.
