The Find: an abstract streetcar print for the Toronto transit lover

This week, the TTC launched a new online shop for transit-themed merchandise. The selection is pretty slim at the moment (just six posters and two maps), but apparently “big ideas” are in the works. In the meantime, we love this print from Toronto artist Jerry Waese, who’s known for his abstract graphic style and has a penchant for making the TTC look a whole lot better than it does in real life. The image, which was actually commissioned for the cover of the new TTC Ride Guide, perfectly captures that melancholy feeling of staring out a streetcar window on a rainy day—a potentially traumatizing commute reminder for regular streetcar riders, but also a nostalgic tribute to the iconic cable cars, which won’t be around for long. $15
