Photographer's Note

This is not a great photo just posting some history behind these 110 year old trolley tracks. I've been going by the remains of these tracks for years and finely found out how old they were and who was behind the origins.

Spokane and Montrose, led by Francis Cook, T.J. Dooley, and Horatio N. Belt began operating a new line in Nov,1888, using steam driven streetcars called Steam Dummies. The Line went south looping up to Grand Blvd and an undeveloped potential park called Montrose Park, now called Manito Park.

This line was converted to newfangled electric streetcars in 1892, with electricity purchased from WWP. After the Panic of 1893, J.P Graves took over the Spokane and Montrose and changed the name to Spokane Traction Company.
