Yellow PCC streetcar heading east on 56th Street. Kenosha Wisconsin USA. June 17th 2000.

I had taken this photo along 56th Street, in downtown Kenosha Wisconsin. The Streetcar right of way is mostly in a grassy median for safety and operational reasons. The grassy median right of way resembles the Saint Charles streetcar line in the city of New Orleans Louisianna USA. The yellow car represents the city of Cincinnatti Ohio USA, who had this type of modern streetcars in this color scheme during the 1940's and early 1950's.
Because it is yellow with green stripes, it is sometimes unofficially referred to as the
Green Bay Packer trolley by the local NFL football fans.
