What would happen if a person in a wheel chair was trying to us the street or sidewalk at the same time that a street car came by?

There is not enough room for both. Remarkable photo and scene.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Wow, that's cutting it close! Fascinating that they have built this so close to the buildings.

Wow there is not much room for pedestrians when the tram come through. Love the bright colour. Diane

Arija said...

Great for the passengers but I for one, would not like to be a pedestrian in that situation. Love the shot though.

Lowell said...

Oh wow! How did you do that without getting run over? What a great shot!

Not a lot of room there. But if you had no money you could jump from one of the 2nd floor windows onto the top of the tram. The problem would be, of course, how you get off! :-)

The tram is really squeezing through that small space! A lovely photo!

Kathy said...

There's not much room to stand on the sidewalk!

TexWisGirl said...

close quarters! yikes!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Oh la! Now that's what I call a tight fit! Everyone breath in!!

Sharon said...

That is a very narrow street for that tram to run on.

Babzy said...

wow , very narrow ! :)

Sylvia K said...

Great shot for the day, JM!! That NARROW street is amazing!! Hope there aren't a lot of overweight people trying to get down that sidewalk at the same time as the tram!!

ladyfi said...

Great shot! But what do the pedestrians do?

Karl Demetz said...

Wow, what does a tram in such a narrow street.

Fantastic shot, JM !!

Shaun Gibbs said...

Pretty neat JM, im not going to say that its NARROW because i feel that the word NARROW has been used previously to describe this typically NARROW street with a NARROW tram in it. Guess thats me just being NARROW minded.
Only kidding, cracking shot JM

That;s very cozy trail for the trolley!

RedPat said...

Tight fit. Love that coloured wall!

Jesh St Germain said...

Great narrow shot! Am glad I don't live in this street:)

Halcyon said...

Wow! And I thought the streets of Toronto were narrow for our streetcars! :)

Kay said...

The colors really pop here - wonderful shot! Tight as it is I wonder how people living on the first floor of those buildings feel about looking up and into tram windows as they pass by? It's amazing how close it comes.

VP said...

What a fascinating image: at first I took it for an elevador but I see now that it is a real tram car!

cieldequimper said...

And of course you had to photograph a yellow tram against a yellow façade...

Inverness Daily Photo said...

I would assume pedestrian's are not allowed down that street.

Jack said...

They really squeezed that trolley in there! Great image, JM.

Randy said...

Tight fit.

Photo Cache said...

this is crazy, how close is the rail to the house.

Dina said...

Oi ! I'll have to start a diet before visiting that street.

Kate said...

I'd hate to be on the sidewalk when the tram passes by!

Stefan Jansson said...

Wow is a good word here.

Gunn said...

I will add that on my list of things to do in Lisboa. :)

AGMPRISMA said...

!Escelente!

Sami said...

I rode Nr 28 too when I visited Lisbon in July this year. Some spots are quite tight and scary!

tapirgal said...

Hah! Made me laugh. Reminds me of a street we drove through and nearly got stuck. This is amazing on many levels, including the sheer interest of the image.
