Flashback Friday

Flashback Friday!

Were you able to guess the location and year of today’s photo?

You are looking at three streetcars at the Kingsland/University City Loop on May 6, 1949.

Just across the street from this location, Craft Alliance is holding its 50th anniversary celebration tonight. Click here for the details.

The building on the right now houses Cicero’s restaurant.

Have a great weekend!

    I noticed “1949” {the year of the photo} stenciled above the rotating street sign at the front of the streetcar. Coincidence?

    As a kid attending Delmar Harvard grade school across Kingsland from the Loop, I used to watch those rickety old Peter Witt Creve Coeur streetcars come and go. And on occasion a family member would take me on it out to Heman Park.
