Modern Times: A Streetcar Named Déjà Vu
Until World War II when the family car became common, the electric streetcar was the most important form of transit in cities.Texas had more streetcars than any other west of the Mississippi. Today, with “urban sprawl” and “carbon footprints” mass transit is a hot topic in cities that abandoned it for the automobile. Bruce J. Hunt will take Modern Timers for a ride on the first electric interurban transit in Austin and beyond.
