|Title||Rainier Avenue streetcar tracks in Columbia City, Seattle, July 6, 1915 |
|Photographer||Nowell, Frank H., 1864-1950 |
|Caption||This photo was taken on July 6, 1915, looking south along Rainier Avenue up to Columbia. Rainier Avenue has been regraded, as the tracks are on the west side of Rainier and there are two sets of tracks rather than one. The planks in the foreground indicate the location of the trolley stop at Angeline Street. Also, in the foreground, notice the spur leading off to the left. It was used to transport the coal cars to the bunkers of the Valley Fuel Coal, located just off Rainier in the gully on Alaska Street. The gully was later used as a landfill and is currently the site of the Columbia City Post Office. |
|Notes||The Toby Building is visible on the left.|
