Street Car Interior – c. 1915

Today’s photo comes from a reader named George C. who lives in the south eastern United States, but came across the website via some information he received about the Electric Avenue Show last year at the art gallery. He sent along this photo to share with readers. There is no date on the photo, but taking a guess it looks to be WWI era…

After consulting with Bernie, this guy was the Motorman, his had reads Sandwich, Windsor & Amherstburg Railway

This gentleman was the conductor. According to Bernie, the street railway operated a 2 man system until the early 1930’s, then they ran with just a driver until they were removed in 1938.

Have a good weekend everyone. See you back here Monday. Thanks for sharing the photo George!
