For some, the streetcar meant more than a mode of transportation. It symbolized an era of city life. From the late 1800s to the 1960s, streetcars guided Baltimore's growth, carrying people from home to their jobs, the movies, malls and amusement parks. This weekend, they will carry people once again, if only a short ways. The Baltimore Streetcar Museum hosts its annual Tinsel Trolley this weekend and Dec. 18-19, offering 20-minute streetcar rides with Santa Claus along with its usual exhibitions.

Bill Hoffman's mother always spoke about the blaze as he was growing up, indelibly imprinting the image of a burning metropolis in his mind. So he decided to peel back the layers of history yesterday, driving from Severna Park to downtown Baltimore. "It was one of the biggest events in her life," said Hoffman, 75, who was born 25 years after the Great Baltimore Fire. He and scores of others visited the Maryland Historical Society's Baltimore Ablaze: The Great Fire of 1904 exhibit, which included rooms painted a burnt-orange color and full of pictures, remnants from the fire, oral histories and large plaques explaining the disaster and its ruinous effect on the city.
