Book Condition: USED We here at Elistics have a 100% satisfaction guarentee. We also ship no later than next business day. Thank you for your business. Sold by valley of the sun books. Condition: Used: Acceptable. At the turn of the last century Los Angeles boasted the largest mass transit system in the world. The Red Car lines were more extensive than the subway system in New York, the Underground in London and the Metro in Paris or Berlin. With the advent of the automobile this magnificent history was erased from the collective memory. This book performs a valuable service in giving a glimpse of the extent of that extensive mass transit system.

While this was conceived mainly as a book for train and trolley buffs, it does, by documenting the spread of mass transit through the LA basin, form a history of urban growth. The abundant photos are not entirely of rolling stock and track.
