1. WHen I was a kid, I looked forward to taking the Woodward streetcar into the city.
At the time, it ran out to Pleasant Ridge and we'd take the bus and transfer. We lived in Berkley. It meant a day shopping at Hudson's. A hot fudge sundae at Sanders. A Boston Cooler at the Vernor's plant. A visit to the Detroit Public Library and the Museum.

Losing the streetcars was terrible ... an unforgivable error by GM and the auto barons.
