Street Cars Revisited

Back in 2007 I wrote about street cars in the DC area.

Thanks to You Tube videos, one can re-live the glory days of street cars in Washington, DC. This was posted on a Facebook group called Bethesda Chevy Chase Back In The Day

Leaving the East Captitol Street Car Barn. Going West around Lincoln Park and Up East Capitol Street

This short 16 mm film was discovered by Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 689 recently and converted. It appears to be shot in the early to mid 1950s.

Thanks for sharing these. We live right around the corner from the Car Barn, and it's neat to see the neighborhood from all those years ago (I admit I would have preferred less focus on the street car and more on the surrounding buildings).
