Electric streetcars first took to the streets in Portland in 1889. By the teens, there were 28 streetcar and interurban lines in the Portland area. The Irvington car shown, like most at the time, was built by the American Car Company, a subsidiary of the Brill Company in St. Louis, Missouri. It was a PAYE (pay as you enter) car. The conductor is Lattie Clinton, brother-in-law of photographer Olaf Indahl. While the original real photo postcard is not attributed, family lore states that Indahl created the photo. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
