Yesterday, we asked you to guess the location of this Seattle trolley stop in 1953. One guess was for 2nd and Union, another thought it might be Pike & 4th. walker-d guessed it was Pike & Second, which was the closest. The actual answer: Pike Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

The trolley bus is facing west towards Elliott Bay and Pike Street was later made eastbound-only. The Route 2 trolley traveled to West Queen Anne until 1963 when the entire system was scraped and revamped.
