Streetcar Renaissance
In this Sept. 28, 2013 photo, the Southeastern Pennsylvania streetcar heads west parallel and next to 54th Street during Kenosha Streetcar Day in Kenosha, Wis. When the city of Kenosha lost the auto plant that employed thousands, the a bruised community in southern Wisconsin plucked something unexpected from its pre-automobile past to help reinvent the city and fill its depressed downtown with life. They brought back their street cars, sending brightly colored antique trolleys creeping along a two-mile loop around the city and along the lake Michigan shore. (AP Photo/Michael Schmidt)
