They found trolley tracks here

Appar­ent­ly there is an inter­est­ing sto­ry behind the wide inter­sec­tion near our house in Cam­bridge… all week, a con­struc­tion crew has been tear­ing up the asphalt, in order to re-pave. And, they found train tracks under­neath the street. Train tracks, imag­ine that!

A neigh­bor told us that a trol­ley line used to run down Brook­line Ave, and our inter­sec­tion was a “turn-around”, where cars could change direction.

I’d love to find some his­tor­i­cal pho­tos, espe­cial­ly con­sid­er­ing our house is right on the corner.
