Turning from Second to Pike, Seattle, c1910

A Seattle Electric Company streetcar turns to head south on Pike Street from Second Avenue. The Summit Line ran the route of the current (well, soon to run again) Metro 47 bus.

 

I wrote about the Summit Line in a three part series for Capitol Hill Seattle Blog: Part 1; Part 2; Part 3.
