Title: Opening day, Chattanooga Electric Railway routes to Lookout Mountain and the Incline No. 2, April 1890

Catalog Number: 2017.058.0001

Date (Years): 1890

Description:

Five electric streetcars are in a row with No. 28 in the lead. A vast number of men are standing and sitting in the streetcars and standing gathered around the outside of them. Several of the men are the streetcar conductors. The streetcars have wide open windows and appear to be in a couple of different styles. In the distance, behind the streetcars, are two buildings. The image is backstamped “Schemedling, 828 Market Street, Chattanooga, Tenn.” on the verso.

The event was a Broad Street parade on the opening day of the Chattanooga Electric Railway, celebrating new routes to Lookout Mountain and the Incline No. 2, in April 1890. C. E. James is seen in the lead electric streetcar wearing his trademark bowler hat and holding an umbrella.

Car no. 28 was built locally by the Chattanooga Electric Railroad in its own shops at 3rd & Market Street. The company took two old horsecars and spliced them together, then they added the appropriate electric motors, trolley poles and other electrical apparatus to make it functional. They did this with several other cars.
