Old Cincinnati StreetcarA real Cincinnati streetcar at the Cincinnati History Museum at Union Terminal.  Someone bought it after the streetcars were replaced with buses and most of the other streetcars were set to fire. He used it to house a little antique shop. There was an older gentleman on the streetcar telling stories about the history of the streetcar and his life in post-WWII Cincinnati.
