Photograph of the opening of the Hastings Street Tramline Extension, Capitol Hill. The man seen standing in the front row, near the centre of the photograph (with the light-coloured coat) and in front of the mounted police officer, has been identified as Joe Toffaletto (he headed up the BCER construction team which built this line and who was also known as the anchor for the BCER tug-of-war team). Reeve McGregor is standing near the door to the tram, holding a pipe in one hand and a cane in the other (he is also the only man wearing a bow-tie) and Eber Stride is standing directly in front of the tram, wearing a three-piece suit with a white shirt and bowler hat. British Columbia Electric Railroad official R.H. Sperling and BCER general executive agent Fred R. Glover (his topcoat is open) are standing second from right and third from right respectively. The remainder of the men are unidentified although Councillors Coldicutt, MacDonald, Mayne and MacPherson, with municipal engineer MacPherson, British Columbia Electric Railroad chief engineer G.R.G. Conway and traffic agent for the city J.B. Rainey, solicitor A.E. Beck, chief inspector W. Whitenick, traffic superintendent James Hilton and Burnaby resident W.J. Holdom, Motorman C.C. Cameron and Conductor A. Sherman are said to be pictured.
