Streetcar Renaissance
In this Sept. 28, 2013 photo, Mike Pavelich, left, his daughter Moxie, 2, of Kenosha, Wis. and their friend Joe Georges, of Waukegan, Ill., enjoy a ride aboard the Southeastern Pennsylvania streetcar outside the Joseph McCarthy Transit Center during Kenosha Streetcar Day. When the city of Kenosha lost the auto plant that employed thousands, the a bruised community in southern Wisconsin plucked something unexpected from its pre-automobile past to help reinvent the city and fill its depressed downtown with life. They brought back their street cars, sending brightly colored antique trolleys creeping along a two-mile loop around the city and along the lake Michigan shore. (AP Photo/Michael Schmidt)
