My first memory of riding in a streetcar was when I was about five years old. The green line from St. Charles into the French Quarter was my very first journey. I recall we went to eat at the Camellia Grill on S Carrollton Ave of the River Bend area of New Orleans – a true staple that I miss greatly, now residing in Los Angeles. I ordered the bananas foster pancakes, my favorite still to this day. Once we had eaten, we boarded the streetcar and I recall finding the machine quite intriguing, for it looked like a train car and I kept referring to the driver as the conductor.
When I saw this great streetcar perusing flickr, I had to go see it for myself and it certainly brought back that memory of my first streetcar ride. I miss the little things like this from my hometown, and though they are restructuring to have streetcars in Los Angeles again, it is just not the same as taking that journey down the hundred oak covered avenues of New Orleans. If you ever get the chance, I encourage you to ride one.
