From the 1890s through the 1920s, as horse gave way to machine, the look of Toronto and the lifestyles of its inhabitants were irrevocably altered. From Horse Power to Horsepower is a pictorial history of the vehicles of the era. First there was the electric streetcar, then the automobile, and soon all manner of working vehicles. The book is richly illustrated with photos from the City of Toronto Archives and other sources.
