We conducted this shoot in two trolley cars that had been set together as a dwelling after retiring from transit service in 1930s Charleston, South Carolina. After the American Civil War, the town’s streets were lined with iron tracks for the cars, which were initially horse-drawn. The last year that Charleston used electric streetcars for municipal transport was 1938. At the time of this shoot, the cars were in a vast, desolate vacant lot. The cars had suffered years of vandalism and have since been removed from this location to be restored as a historical display. The setting provokes thoughts of what experiences and sights, including photography, must have happened in and around the cars over many generations.
