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.
