Revised edition, 1983. Starting with horse-drawn cars in 1871 and converting to electric-power in the late 1880s, the larger cities and towns of Colorado installed streetcar lines in order to transport residents from place to place. This slim booklet describes these trolley systems in black & white photos and words. Systems in Denver, Pueblo, Colorado Springs and 9 other towns are covered. While extremely popular, c.1900, the advance of the automobile led to their demise by the 1930s-50s. --- A softcover copy, in gold stapled wraps with image of a trolley car operating in mountainous terrain. --- An excellent copy: unmarked and sound.; Octavo - 8 to 9 in. tall; 60 pages
