Description: For the first time, a complete history of the streetcars of Omaha, Nebraska, and Council Bluffs, Iowa, is presented in one volume. From the beginnings in 1866 and 1868 to the conclusions in 1948 and 1955, the rise and fall of public rail transportation in these two Missouri River cities is recorded year-by-year and sometimes day-by-day.
Additional Information: A sprinkling of events of importance throughout the world has been added to indicate what other people were doing at the time the street railways were growing up in Omaha and Council Bluffs.
Hundreds of photographs show what the cities were like when street railways existed.
