      The streetcars were slow but steady. Cost effective too I think. I still remember how they smelled…not unpleasant – a little metalic – anyone remember that??? Too bad they got rid of so many and paved over the rails.

    I knew lots of people living in old warehouses on Wade back in the early 80s. It was a scary corner. Perhaps a bit less so now. But in that pic, the scene looks positively nostalgic.

  6. Yes it was. I lived up the street from here in 1979 and my apartment (top floor of a house) was $150.00/month. I got a room mate so the rent was then $75.00.
    The house (3 story detached) was for sale for $58,000.00…..
