December, 1891: A photo submitted by Globe reader John C. Parsons of Dedham in 1964 showed a double-decked street car operated by the West End Railway Co., which ran from North Ave. Cambridge to North Stable, afterward known as the North Cambridge barn. The upper deck had a roof, but no sides. The West End Railway founded in 1887 was the preeminent street car system for the Greater Boston area. In 1897, the West End Railway was integrated into the Boston Elevated Railway.
