SIA Philadelphia Car Barn Tour:

Girard Horse Car Barn
Girard Avenue Horse Car Barn was a complex of buildings constructed in 1859
between Girard Avenue, Poplar Street, 26th and 27th Streets,
by the Richmond & Schuylkill Passenger Railway Co.
Between the 1890s and 1912, the barns housed early electric trolleys.
The main building (shown above) once faced Girard Avenue, but has been torn down.
