Flashback Friday

Return to Blog

Today’s blast from the past looks upon Cherokee Street in 1946. It looks like the streetcar overhead wires are being used to hang Christmas decorations along the street along with the street lamps.

Speaking of Cherokee Street, this weekend marks the annual Cherokee Street Cookie Spree. Ride MetroBus (#8, #11 & #73) to Antique Row and enjoy Santa, cookies, cakes, music, hot cider, popcorn and other enchantments.

Have a great weekend!

    I was born in 1946. I was in Fairchilds many times in the early 1950’s with my mother for clothes, mainly blue jeans. The #73 Carondelet car had been changed to buses by then but the Jefferson car was still running. #20 Cherokee bus also served Cherokee Street. #11 Chippewa bus crossed California Ave. A few blocks south of Cherokee. I remember riding the #40 Broadway, #? Jefferson, #? Forest Park. #? Delmar and #70 Grand streetcars. Are these pictures part of your personal collection? Thanks for sharing.
