Snowy Street



Today's picture shows a seen with a street car on a snowy street. The picture was taken in Detroit in 1900. It looks like the people on the back of the car are huddled up for warmth.

  1. I just wanted to say again, I enjoy your photos. These snowy pictures remind me of one I saw in a Biography type book about Harley Davidson. The family rode their bikes even in the winter. They were from Wisconsin, so you know how snowy it was. They women were driven around in side cars with their fur coats buttoned up and the snow coming down. It just amazes me that they did that. Thank you for sharing these photos.

  3. A beautiful picture, with the church in the background. Obviously no wind that day, since the tree branches are covered. Maybe the back of the trolley is full not just for warmth but because the trolley car's so full! Almost no pedestrians. It looks like the snow's still coming down, so the street and sidewalk haven't been cleared yet. If I had to be out on a day like that, I'd sure take the trolley too! That tower to the left of the church steeple is interesting. It looks too modern for 1900. Wonder what it is??
