Windsor, Essex & Lake Shore Rapid Rwy.
Taken between 1922 and 1926. The trolleybus is No. 1 through 4 by St. Louis Car operating on the Erie Street line of Ontario Hydro Electric Railways. The interurban is a Windsor, Essex and Lake Shore Rapid Railway A.C. car.  Note the very large breakers where the interurban wire crosses the trolleybus wires. This is probably the only place where a high voltage A.C. railway line crossed a first generation trolleybus line.
