Precursor to the LRT and MRT, the Tranvia

An old photo of a tranvia or tramvia (electric street tram) that used to ply the streets of Manila. The tranvia service started in 1905 during the American era. It was operated by the Manila Electric Railroad and Light Company (the same Meralco we know today.) The tranvia operated until just before World War 2 (WWII) broke.
