Overview

This extensively illustrated,
240-page volume documents the long and colorful history of streetcar transportation in the city of New Orleans.

This reprint of a 1965 volume,
written by the two leading authorities on the subject, represents the complete work on the subject of New Orleans traction and urban railways. Featured are sections on early city transportation, and the golden era of electric traction
(1893-1926), along with technical aspects, trackage, and mileage routes.

A series of maps pinpoints, for traction enthusiasts, the locations of tracks no longer extant and provides information on companies that once operated the network of rails. Also included is a special section on the types of cars that were used throughout the traction era.

Authors Hennick and Charlton also have collaborated on a companion volume to this work, Street Railways of
Louisiana , also published by Pelican.
