Elgin County Court House, St. Thomas, ca. 1899, showing the reconstructed building following the fire of July 1, 1898. View is looking east along Wellington Street from William Street.

The St. Thomas Street Railway was electrified on June 1, 1898 - previously its cars were horse-drawn. File includes:

Two copies of a black and white photograph showing London and Lake Erie Railway and Transportation Company car 2, at the company's car barns and shops at the intersection of Talbot and Stanley Streets and adjacent to the old St. Thomas Town Hall (partially visible in the background with the distinctive turret). St. Thomas City Directory for 1916 includes listings for "L & LE freight office and sub-station", 140-142 Talbot Street; "L & LE shops", 146 Talbot Street; and "Street car barns" (i.e. storage barns for the St. Thomas Street Railway), 154 Talbot Street, in the old Town Hall building.

The London and Lake Erie Railway and Transportation Company operated a "traction line" passenger service between London, Ontario and Port Stanley via St. Thomas. In 1908 the company took over the operation from the bankrupt South Western Traction Company (which was incorporated in 1902 and began operating a passenger rail service in October, 1907) until it went out of business in 1918. View is looking east.
