Streetcar parlor car “St. Louis,” Duluth, Minnesota

In 1896, the Duluth Street Railway converted an 1891-built streetcar into the parlor car “St. Louis.” Furnished with 12 upholstered chairs, oriental rugs, heavy curtains, an ice box and buffet, it was used by company officials to entertain guests and was available for charters and tours. It is shown outside the car house on Superior Street West shortly before it was scrapped in 1918.
