Streetcars and people...

My offering for Sepia Saturday 215 are a few old postcards of streetcars.

Which I adore, particularly after the memories shared by my grandmother, Doris Balding Williams, about riding the streetcar with her own mother to shop and pay bills in Little Rock in the nineteen teens...

This is a Sepia Saturday post.

Head over there to see other lovely old photos and cards.

Street Traffic

I love horse-drawn transport for the atmosphere but for sheer practicality i love trams, or what you call streetcars. Do those towns still have their trams ? Very interesting.
