Spirit of St. Louis Streetcar

Murch Morris

The Cherry St. electric streetcar stands on its tracks on the brick-paved street with large trees behind. Doors are located at both end of the car, and large windows line the sides between the doors. A picture of the Spirit of St. Louis, Charles Lindberg's plane, is painted on the side with its name below. The rod to the overhead cable is visible and two small American flags are attached at the left of the car.
