Flashback Friday

Return to Blog

If you thought that something seems not quite right in this picture you were not mistaken. A crowd gathers round after a University line car jumped the tracks at a switch at Broadway and Olive Street downtown on Sept. 26, 1946. No one in the car or on the street was injured.

Have a great weekend!

    Looks like a de-railed streetcar at Olive and Broadway, Downtown St. Louis – Early 1940’s?

      It appears so James!

  2. John F Crowley says:

    This is precisely why streetcar motormen should not hiccup while operating a streetcar.
