That would have been a very expensive method as it probably would have take about 2 or 3 streetcars for each building, not to mention the difficulties in aiming once you got the easy ones done...

I was sitting at a red light at that very intersection this weekend and tried to picture this scene. There is nothing remaining that would even give a clue that this part of Brunswick Street ever looked like this. It drove home the point of how completely this neighborhood was cleared out in the sixties.
