Old Skyline

Before the next stop, Union Station/S 19th, the line becomes double tracked in its right of way on the median of Pacific Ave.  The streetcar in this view is just about to encounter the switch.

Many of the buildings visible in the photo date to a much earlier era in the city's history.  Tacoma is an old city, by Western standards, and has seen many ups and downs.
