QBLOGS – The video by Costa Rica Antigua E Inedita gives a glimpse of simpler time in San Jose, in 1910, when “Josefinos” could walk the streets and took the “tranvía” (street car).

The remnant of the tranvía are still buried below the asphalt that covers Paseo Colon and many other streets of downtown San Jose. I saw the uncovered rails some years back during the repaving of Paseo Colon.

So why are the politicians today, more than 100 years later, having a hard time bringing back the street car as a solution to the current downtown traffic chaos?

More photos of Costa Rica past can be found at the Universidad de Costa Rica CIHAC portal.
