Artist's impression of streetcars on south Broad Street, looking towards City Hall.

Caption reads: How Philadelphia's grandest thoroughfare will look when the surface rapid transit line shall have been put in operation under the plans which Congressman Foerderer has announced will be prepared "as rapidly as a corps of competent engineers can get them out." The underground current system is to be used, doing away with the overhead wires.
