I found this photo at My Link page "Dave's Electric Railroads", located to the right of Your computer screen at

For many people who grew up in Chicago's western suburbs prior to April of 1948, a great way to travel around the surrounding towns and to the Chicago city limits, was by the electric streetcars of the Chicago & West Towns Electric Railway.

This photo taken proboubly in the early 1940's, shows an eastbound streetcar from the Chicago & West Towns crossing the Des Plaines River on Lake Street, just east of First Avenue near Maywood Illinois.
