#fbf: 79th & Cottage Grove 1950s

79th/Cottage Grove 1950s
Since it seemed streetcars have been my subject of interest lately here's a streetcar pic that you might have seen here just over four years ago. This streetcar the #4 Cottage Grove is seen near 79th/Cottage Grove. You might recognize that building on your right side of the pic which is still standing to this day.

According to a comment in that post from November 2013 streetcar service was discontuinued on the #4 on June 19, 1955 and service converted to buses.

Now I wouldn't mind taking a pic of this area now! Perhaps I shall in the near future!

Incidentally that last link was of a throwback pic of 84th & State a streetcar turnaround loop. Perhaps another future throwback post to share, even if there isn't a lot of info to share here.
