|Title||Seattle-Tacoma interurban streetcar, near Kent, ca. 1909 |
|Photographer||Curtis, Asahel, 1874-1931 |
|Date||ca. 1909 |
|Caption||Interurban trolley service between Seattle and Tacoma began in 1902. The high-speed Puget Sound Electric Railroad won passengers and freight away from the slower Puget Sound steamers. Regular trolley service on the line also speeded the development of the area between Seattle and Tacoma. Service ended in 1928, a victim of the more-popular automobile.|
This photo shows car 500 and two other Seattle-Tacoma interurban cars near Kent, Washington. Car 500 was built in 1902 and served on the Puget Sound Electric Railway until 1916.
