The City of Gary and the Indiana Department of Transportation unveiled a historic marker on Friday to commemorate the city's historic streetcar rail line. The marker features an authentic photograph of streetcars rumbling down the bustling intersection of 5th Avenue and Broadway, circa 1913, along with a brief history of the rail line, which first began operation in 1908 to transport thousands of workers to the mills.
