The Coupler, the TTC's venerable internal magazine, has been running more or less continuously since the creation of Toronto's transit authority in the early 1920s.
Its pages are a repository for the ongoing history of the TTC as viewed from the inside. It has published commemorative issues with each new subway line and tracked the Commission as it grew into one of the most used mass transit systems in North America.
Every year since 1924, the magazine has published a special Christmas cover, almost always in colour, for its December issue. Viewed in series, the scenes range from charming to a little frightening (check out the cover from 1971), but they're all pure vintage Toronto.
Here are some of the best of the Coupler's Christmas editions, courtesy of the TTC archives.
