Flashback Friday

Return to Blog

Flashback Time!

Pictured here is a southbound Public Service car on Broadway in 1956.

Ahh, 1956. The year Elvis Presley entered the U.S. music charts for the first time, with “Heartbreak Hotel,” Norma Jean Mortenson officially became Marilyn Monroe and the Yankees beat the Brooklyn Dodgers in the World Series (sigh.)

The local nine included such names as Ken Boyer, Alvin Dark and Stan Musial. Sadly, they finished in fourth place that year.

    This is a 40 BROADWAY streetcar, southbound, I think, on Broadway just after leaving Downtown. Year is in the 1952 to 1956 range, as streetcar service ended on 40 in 1956. Car 1772 went on to many more years of service at Shaker Heights Rapid Transit on the eastside of Cleveland.
