About this title


Fascinating and thorough history of mass transit in Atlanta, from the days of mule and horse-drawn cars through the days of steam and electric streetcars up through to the sleek MARTA era. Brings the titanic struggle between Joel Hurt and Henry M. Atkinson for control of the trolley lines to vivid life, with the resulting domination of the Georgia Power Co., as well as tracing the work of Preston Arkwright and Robert L. Somerville. The book provides a clear historical perspective showing the important role the street railways played in the development of Atlanta. The book also covers the Marietta and Stone Mountain interurbans. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With numerous maps and a biography section of leading figures in the transportation field in Atlanta. 178 pages with index.
