Some Cars

The following was provided by Charlie Boyer:

Attached is an article that was published in the Traction & Models magazine, June 1977 issue. They have ceased operations, I can't tell you when for sure. I thought it may have something in it that you could use.

East Third Strteet. The 1936 period when the trolley tracks were being removed and the street rebuilt.

East Third Street removal of trolley tracks.



Not all Trolley tracks were removed in the 1930's or 40's. The next five pictures were taken August 13, 2013 when the bottom half of West Street, from W5th Street to the Newell Bridge, was stripped to be repaved. Part of the original trolley tracks were exposed.

Looking south down West St towards the river and bridge. Notice that some of the old trolley tracks were removed but that last section was left years ago.

Looking north up West Street from the Bridge Toll Station towards the hospital.

As far as we know, those trolley tracks were left there and paved over again.

An interesting picture. November 28, 1938. Past and the future as represented by the trolley, soon to be the past in ELO and the bus coming up behind it which will be the future in ELO for approx 30 years. Passengers are being picked up in Front of the Car Barn in East End.

Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law.
