Vintage Photo Wednesday: Detroit, 1927

Detroit, 1927

This is a news service wire photo of Randolph Street looking west in Detroit, Michigan. It’s dated July 9, 1927. I would love to travel back in time and ride one of those trolley cars.

    Can’t help you with the trolleys in Detroit, but there are plenty of museums around where you can ride trolleys, as well as a couple of cities that are re-introducing them. Museums in East Haven, CT; Kennebunk, ME and a number of others keep the trolleys running, as do cities like Memphis, TN and NOLA (I think I heard theirs were finally running again, post-Katrina). Oh, and I think the Transportation Museum in St Louis has operating trolleys as well.

      I think I saw some trolleys/streetcars in downtown Phoenix when I was there recently.
