Several local institutions have banded together to host a talk on Seattle’s streetcar history:
Thursday August 16th7 to 8 p.m.Roy Street Coffee & Tea, 700 Broadway Ave E
In 1941, Seattle’s streetcar tracks were torn up and sold for scrap. Now we’re tunneling under Capitol Hill and laying new tracks on Broadway. What has changed? Join in a discussion about the past and present of Seattle’s street railways.
Rob Ketcherside will discuss the streetcars of the early 20th century, and insha’Allah I will be there to tie it in to more modern developments in urban rail.
