Kenosha Wisconsin electric streetcar. Kenosha Wisconsin USA. June 17th 2000.

I had taken this photo later that afternoon. This was the official "Grand Opening Day" for the newly created historic trolley system in the city of Kenosha Wisconsin. A former TTC -Toronto Transit Commision electric PCC streetcar built in 1951, is passing the Kenosha Courthouse on 56th Street. Kenosha Transit has 5 former TTC electric trolleys on it's roster. The car here was retained and restored in "Toronto" colors. The other 4 represent other citties that used PCC type trolleys. At the time of the grand opening...only 2 cars, the Maroon Toronto car -and the Yellow Cincinatti Ohio car, were on the property that day. The green (Chicago) the red (Pittsburgh P.A) and the orange (Johnstown P.A) cars were soon to arrive in Kenosha Wi.
