For a trip down nostalgia lane the Ruined Capitol has a few videos of Washington streetcars when they were a big part of the city's landscape. We've pasted one after the jump where you can hear the tell-tale squeak as the street car rounds corners as well as marvel at how remarkably free of traffic the downtown streets were. Check out their site if you want a few more videos from yesteryear.
