Trams & Ferries

More paper ephemera today from the vaults at IM HQ.

Sticking with the transportation theme of the other day… Here are three different and interesting tickets.

1. S.W. & A Railway streetcar ticket from Windsor to Tecumseh. Regional transportation existed, only we killed it off. This ticket dates to the early 1930’s.

2. A ticket good for one fare on the Walkerville – Detroit ferry. Note the treasurer is Harrington Walker. Harrington’s house in Walkerville is still standing. Click here to see it.

3. A much older ticket of the S.W. & A streetcar line. This one dates to probably before 1920 or so… Bernie may be able to confirm…
