Major Events:

On March 31, 1926, a severe ice and sleet storm tore through Toronto, lasting much of the day and evening. The east end bore the brunt of it and poles snapped, blocking streets and bringing down power lines. Toronto Hydro crews rallied and service was restored by midnight to customers who had experienced a power interruption of approximately 13 hours.
This decade also saw the launch of the first electrically-powered trolley bus and first set of electric traffic lights.
