How would you crop this?

I've taken this picture some time ago and I quite like the scene it captures - streetcar passing policemen with ice cream and beer stalls in background. But I can't find a crop I'd like either because the tram gets too close to new frame border or I've got people going out of the frame or I'm getting to square-like aspect ratio. Can somebody of you see a different crop that I don't see?

How about something like this?

Are you opposed to a vertical cropping?

I like the vertical best.

Me too. Seemed too close to the edge when I did something like this myself but this looks fine to me. Thanks!

I was originally going to suggest something to similar to what Jon said, but looking at the vertical now I like it. The only thing I might do would be to include just a little more on the right - show a little more of the street curving away in the background, as I think that adds something to the shot.

The only thing about the vertical is that it crops out the most interesting people in the shot in my opinion. I kow the placment of the trolleye thingie doesn't concur with the Rule of Thirds, but I actually like the original shot the best.
