Streetcars Were Unique to Each City

Posted on Updated on

From Bring Back the Streetcars: A Conservative Vision of Tomorrow’s Urban Transportation by Paul M. Weyrich and William S. Lind:

“Every city’s streetcars were different. When the streetcars went away, so did the flavor of that city.”  Bringing back the  streetcars puts back the flavor our cities and towns have lost, and tells the world that it is not going to go away again.  -George Sanborn, reference librarian of the Massachusetts State Transportation Library
