Flashback Friday

Return to Blog

We crossed the river for this week’s Flashback, with a nod to the exciting happenings in the new Granite City Art and Design District. Click here for events starting this weekend in the district. You can easily combine Metro and Madison County Transit to enjoy the events and galleries.

This is a view looking south showing car #451 on Madison Avenue, just south of 17th Street in Granite City, showing street resurfacing work, on June 3, 1956. Car 451 was built by the St. Louis Car Co. in 1949 and is now preserved at the Connecticut Trolley Museum.

    Scott Ave. near Vandeventer? c.1950?

    This is the Illinois Terminal suburban service in Granite City, probably on Madison Avenue.
