Here’s a picture of an example of what was known as the Cincinnati Street Car series. This shot was taken on London Street (now University Ave) at Pelissier about 1930.

What if I told you one of these cars stayed in the area and has recently been unearthed. Despite being out of service for nearly 70 years, a large part of a similar car still exists…

Check back here Friday for more of the story… 🙂 If you’ve heard about this, no spoilers…
