Rollsigns from Guelph, ON
Transit in Guelph dates back to 1895 with the incorporation of the Guelph Railway Company. It
changed it's name to Guelph Radial Railway in 1903, and operated until the end of June, 1939, with a
number of other name changes during its existence. The modern Guelph Transportation Commission
has operated several models of buses through its history, and continues to provide service today.

As visible from the signs shown below, the routes in Guelph didn't
change much in the 20 year span of the first six signs.
This set of mylar rollsigns are off of 1963 built GMC TDH-5303
#65. Both signs are dated July 14, 1971, and they each have
20 exposures. Their respective sign tags, and a photo of the
bus with these signs still in it, are featured below.
This mylar side route sign
is dated August 29, 1978
and  has 24 exposures. Its
sign tag is shown below.
This mylar front route sign is
dated September 26, 1986
and has 25 exposures. Its
