3 ANGUS, Fred Loyalist City Streetcars : The Story of Street Railway Transit in Saint John, New Brunswick. First Edition in dustjacket
Railfare Enterprises Limited and The New Brunswick Museum, Toronto / Saint John:, 1979, ISBN:0919130291 
ANGUS, Fred. Loyalist City Streetcars : The Story of Street Railway Transitin Saint John, New Brunswick. Toronto / Saint John: "Published jointly by Railfare Enterprises Limited and The New Brunswick Museum", 1979. First Edition. Pp i-ii,1-82. Double column. Illustrated. Small folio, reddish-brown imitation leather. "For nearly 80 years the city was served by streetcars, originally horse-drawn and later powered by electricity. The history of thevarious companies which ran the streetcars in Saint John is one of conside rable interest, full of ambitious schemes, disappointments, frustrations, reorganizations, modernizations, plus innumerable anecdotes and legends. Except for the period 1876 to 1887, the streetcars ran from 1869 to 1948. Overthe years the number of cars run was surprisingly large in relation to the size of the system. By the time the last trams gave way to buses most Nort h American systems of comparable size had long since been abandoned, and the single-truck hand-braked cars were relics of a bygone era. In Loyalist City Streetcars, author Fred Angus captures the flavour of Canada's port city, and tells the story of New Brunswick's first street railway. You'll read about the bottleneck created by the original bridge over the famous Reversing Falls, with its inability to carry the weight of electric cars causing adivision of the street railway into two physically-separate sections.. See the streetcars meet steamboats at Indiantown, for the journey into town to bypass the falls. Hear how the horse gave way to electricity in J 893. Say "Thanks", along with all Saint John riders and residentss, tor the cars' hand-brakes which — with operator skill and much good luck - worked well enough in 54 years ot electric operation, to avoid any serious runaway streetcars down the city's treacherous hills. Read about the wild winter snows grinding the system to a halt. See cars built by Ahearn & Soper, Montreal Street Railway, the Ottawa Car Company, Tillsonburg Electric Car Company, and many more. Study the damage inflicted to turned-over cars during the labour strife of 1914, and how the army was called out to quell the uprising. [....]" - from the dj Contents: Foreword, Chapters : 1.

Washington died in a fire that swept her dock at The Weirs on the night of December 23, 1939, the era of commercial steam navigation on Lake Winnipesaukee died with her.
