A car washing machine cleans a Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) streetcar at the St. Clair Car House in 1934. The site at Christie Street and St. Clair Avenue West was a streetcar maintenance facility from 1913 to 1978, and then fell into disrepair for several years until Artscape, a not-for-profit urban development organization, redeveloped the site into a community cultural centre.
