Central District News has discovered evidence of Seattle’s streetcar past: an old rail sticking out of a pothole.
It seems so foolish now that all the streetcars were put out of business seventy years ago, when now we’re spending hundreds of millions of dollars to put rail back. Makes you wonder what things would have been like if the rails were there all along. CDN put together a map of all the streetcar routes that used to crisscross First Hill and Capitol Hill. A complete map, as of 1941, can be seen on Flickr.
