ONTARIO. 4,5% First Mortgage Bond of £100, specimen. green, black. Formed Toronto 1892 to take over a horse-carriage concession and electrify the system. The company did this and became extremely profitable, by serving only densely-populated central areas. But the city was expanding and TRC did not want to serve the less-profitable new suburbs. So the city started its own electric railway company, and, on the expiry of TRC's concession in 1921, took over the assets of TRC. Vignettes of a streetcar, a lady with lightning, and the arms of the city. Extremely rare.
