    But the roof is where all the action is, you have only to stand up and you can pretend to be a giant fire fly. ;)

    The cars are nearly entirely wood, I think you might be safe from high voltage, but getting pasted in the skull by wires is going to hurt.

    December 1960, Washington, DC, © John Smatlak. Shortly before the system's extinction in 1962, my mother took me and my brothers for a ride. I was too young to remember.

    Wow, what a great shot with all the details in the store windows and all. Great capture!

    I'm picturing Ralphie and his family from "Christmas Story" walking down that street at Christmas time to go see Santa!

    "Ho, ho ho, you'll shoot your eye out kid!"

    I wholeheartedly second that!

    The storefronts and their colorful signs, the beautiful architecture, and a snapshot of daily life. Even a Kresge store!

    Last pic, two different modes of electric transportation, but I'd rather be on that streetcar!:rolleyes:

    Was on vacation in San Fran back in 2008, and the kids and I rode these all over, so cool!:love:

    I really miss the days when we had stores such as these. Malls may be convenient, but they are so impersonal and have no character or charm. :(

    Some sites like RailPictures.Net do not allow their images hot linked.

    Boston & Northern Street Railway at Newburyport, MA. Looks sandy there; the Merrimack Ricer is close by.
