Indianapolis Railways: A Complete History of the Company & Its Predecessors, 1864 to 1957 301 pp, b/w pictures, cloth bound with a color dust jacket, 9" x 12". "The street railway history of Indianapolis is an intriguing one, filled with varying moments of hope, accomplishment, despair, frustration, and downright disgust. From the time the first street railway line was incorporated in 1861 until the final electric car run in 1953 and the succumbing of the trackless trolley operation to motor buses in 1957, the several car companies fought off problems of financing, costruction, government regulations, intrigue, stubborn passengers, private autos - seemingly, it was just one problem after another..." Includes the Beech Grove Traction Company, Broad Ripple Rapid Transit, Irvington Stratford, Indianapolis Traction Terminal.
