This is the oldest car in the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum collection and the body style is typical of Stephenson cars built in the 1870s. There is also proof that cars like 101 were used on lines serving Allegheny City.

In Pittsburgh, the first street railway was built in 1859 on Penn Avenue in the Strip District. Horse cars were used from 1859 until 1923, though most were gone before 1900. The last line, on Sarah Street on the South Side, survived largely to protect a franchise on that street. This picture thought to be taken shortly before 1923 abandonment when Frank the driver (76) retired.
