Picture 4-5.
The Tremont Street car barn is seen in its initial form in 1894.  It was built in October 1892 in the vacated right-of-way of Tremont Street, on the east side of Hickory Street.  Inside, it had five tracks, connected by a transfer table to the Tremont Street track.  It measured 50 x 100 feet.  It was modified in 1902, and again in 1906, when it was converted to a shop building.
