Fond du Lac
Fond du Lac Street Railway & Light Co.
#1 in an American Car Co. builders photo. Newspaper articles about opening day, Sunday June 25, 1899, mention the cars, and that they came from St Louis, but fail to indicate that they are double truck. Since this photo shows a car numbered 1, its probably safe to assume this was the first group of cars. I'd guess this builders photo was taken a few days before June 25th, 1899, as the cars arrived on Saturday and service started Sunday. Therefore, the date of the photo is probably somewhere between June 15 and 22, 1899.
