These trolley cars were everywhere in downtown Memphis, Tennessee. They would run a circuitous route around the downtown area, much of it through the revitalized section. They don’t cost much to ride (maybe a dollar or something), and have the coolest wood-paneled interior spaces.

The night I took this picture, my wife and I were promised that it was “free trolley night” so we didn’t need to worry about paying. However, that intel was apparently wrong, because the drivers insisted on payment. I didn’t think it was a big deal, but my wife’s best friend (who is from Memphis) decided to argue with the conductor about it. Witnessing a southern argument is interesting… neither party actually broke down and violated any code of conduct, morals, or manners; never shouted or questioned the legitimacy of the other’s birth; but you could tell that just under the surface they were seething mad at each other. Surmise it to say, I was impressed.
