Here's a photo from around 1900 of a great intersection with trams in Limoges, France. Limoges had tram service from 1897 until 1951. At that time, the system was replaced by trolley buses.
By the 1930s, trams had lost their appeal and were being replaced by trolleybuses. In France, Paris had set the trend by removing all of its trams. Other cities, including Limoges, followed suit. There has been talk in the last few years of bringing trams back to Limoges, but the idea has yet to gain widespread political support.
