Car Crushed by Trolley in Boston

Wow. I’m pretty sure the people in this car didn’t survive this awful wreck. This photo was taken in 1932 and we found it at the Boston Public Library.

I believe this is the same intersection today on Google Street View. The elevated portion over the car and trolley is no longer there, then known as Washington Street Elevated.
