As Ottawa builds a light rail system across and under the city's core, it's worth noting the last time a streetcar made its way across the capital's streets was nearly 55 years ago, on May 1, 1959.
For Our Ottawa's weekly CBC Rewind, we look back at a story from 25 years ago that takes a closer look at the end of the previous version of light rail to cross the city.
Our Ottawa airs every Saturday at 6 a.m., as well as Sundays and Mondays at 11 a.m.
