Myrtle Avenue Subway, North Riverside, Jacksonville, FL (2/17/2013)
From Metro Jacksonville:
Many years have passed since the last streetcar ran down Jacksonville’s streets. Although most of the infrastructure associated with Jacksonville’s streetcar system no longer exists, if one looks hard enough, a little history can be found.
“The Myrtle Avenue Subway, opening up another convenient passage to the Riverside and Highway districts, has recently been accepted from the contractors by the city. This will give the company a new line to this territory, which we hope will be in operation within the present year.”
