About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Some still running

Restored street cars and interurban cars are still running at the Illinois Railway Museum, Union, Il, about 50 miles NW of Chicago. It's the largest railway museum in the US and, April through November, runs at least one restored street car every weekend on a mile-long loop. This past summer about 60 electric cars ran on one day -- not just sat for viewing, but ran on tracks. The IRM is run entirely by volunteers and has over 400 cars and engines.

Timely Photograph

The last Baltimore streetcar ran on November 3, 1963. Thus, this weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the end of streetcar service in Baltimore. The Park Terminal, which was built in 1909, was the largest streetcar barn in the Baltimore system. It still stands at Druid Hill and Fulton Avenues.

SHORPY HISTORICAL PHOTO ARCHIVE | History in HD is a vintage photo archive featuring thousands of high-definition images from the 1850s to 1960s. (Available as fine-art prints from the Shorpy Archive.) The site is named after Shorpy Higginbotham, a teenage coal miner who lived 100 years ago.
