This is a black and white photograph of an electric streetcar in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The streetcar is entering a brick-paved intersection, possibly along Wealthy Street.
This Wealthy line (either #4 Wealthy-Taylor or #5 Wealthy-Scriber line) streetcar may have been built by G.C. Kuhlman Car Co. in 1907. It features six large “picture”-style windows on each side. These cars were later converted to P.A.Y.E. (pay as you enter) cars: “P.A.Y.E.” is visible, painted on the front of the car.
After the era of horsecars (1865 - 1892) and cable cars (1888 - 1891) had ended and before the era of motor buses (1932 - present) began, the city of Grand Rapids used electric streetcars (1891 - 1935) for its public transit system.
Grand Rapids Railway Company owned and operated Ramona Park on the Western Shore of Reeds Lake in East Grand Rapids for many years. The park was open from 1903-1954. See Ramona Park entity for more information.
