Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - Delores
'Delores' was the name of the funeral streetcar. Funerals were held in the homes in the early days, and after the service the casket was placed in the front of the car and the funeral party had seats in the back of the car. The street car would take them down Reid Avenue and out to the cemetery on the Ridge Road. After burial, the car would bring the party back to Lorain.
