As to the little E streetcars, my wife, as a teenager, would ride from downtown to her family's apartment on Polk St. She has a vivid memory of one rainy night when the car couldn't make it up the Union St. Hill from Columbus. Everybody had to get off, wait in the rain while the car struggled up the slippery tracks. Drenched as she was, her salvation took the form of a hot bath, as soon as she got home.
