The block-long trolley can be seen here in profile near the middle of the scene. The view looks west on Pine from 4th Avenue during the regrade of Pine in preparation for taking away the southern hump or summit of Denny Hill, north from here to Virginia Street. The trolley’s southern “insertion” at Pine has been disassembled. The Fire State sits at the northeast corner of 3rd and Pine. The likely date for this is 1906 after the hotel was closed that spring. The caption at the bottom of the print may be misleading. This is more about the Pine Street regrade than the 3rd Avenue regrade.
