Overview

In 1964, New Orleans began removing its Canal Street streetcars to make way for the "more progressive" buses. In 1988, the Riverfront streetcars began rolling, and in 2004 streetcars made a triumphant return to Canal Street. This concise history, complete with numerous photographs, traces developments in New Orleans streetcar transportation since 1964 and includes chapters on collectibles and the damage from Hurricane Katrina.
