Southbound on Grand Avenue at Olive Street on the last day of 70 Grand streetcars, January 3, 1960. See the notice on the utility pole on the corner by the 57 Chevrolet.
Mr. Hibbard: The 70 Grand streetcar goes straight thru this intersection, it does not turn on Olive. Mr. Fernandes can provide you with a map of the streetcar lines so you can be correct with your descriptions. My answer is from the book this photo appears in and is correct. The streetcar is southbound and yes the photo is taken looking north
