Two uncancelled stock certificates for the Fort Wayne and Elmwood Railway Company. One uncancelled stock certificate for the Fort Wayne and Belle Isle Railway Company.Between 1863 and 1900 approximately 29 streetcars companies had operated either horse-drawn or electric-powered streetcars along streets around the city of Detroit. By 1897, there were only three city companies remaining. The largest and oldest of the the Detroit Citizens Street Railway (a successor to the Detroit City Railway, the city's original 1862 franchise holder) -- also held the control in the two smaller companies. After a legal battle involving Hazen S. Pingree's 10-year battle to take-over their street railway operations, representatives from the three remaining city companies, along with the previously railway operation, announced on Dec. 30, 1900, that all of the street car systems in the Detroit area were to be consolidated into one new system.
