1942 Photo of Maysville's Streetcar Rails

Maysville Kentucky used to have a streetcar that rode on rails through the downtown and Eastside area. This photograph from 1942 shows where the rails once were (I believe this is a street on the Lower Eastside, but I might be mistaken). It's long since been paved over, but Maysville's streetcar history is honored today in faux rails installed on Market Street and a streetcar that makes an appearance during festivals and parades.
