I found this photo at My Link page Daves Electric Railroads, located to the right of Your computer screen at

The city of Baltimore Maryland in the eastern United States, operated electric streetcars as late as 1963.

This car shown here, was photographed by Dan Lawrence in an area refered to as Towson. This car, is a 1930's era streamlined P.C.C or "President's Confeence Commitee design streetcar.

These cars were operated by the Baltimore Transit Company, and were originally painted in a dark blueish green and cream color scheme. This much simplified yellow and gray color scheme, would be the final one wore by these cars in Baltimore service.

Many examples of electric city streetcars from the Baltimore Transit Company, are preserved and operated today at The Baltimore Streetcar Museum.
