The Story of the B.C. Electric Railway Company
Whitecap Books, 1986. 336 pages including index. "The British Columbia Electric Railway consisted of 111 route miles of streetcar operations in four cities: seven interurban lines totaling 141 route miles; 40 million passengers carried in 1910, and almost 146 million in 1947. For 68 years - 1890 to 1958 - the streetcars and trams dominated and defined urban and interurban transportation in the most populated areas of B.C. Today only traces remain of this fascinating and well-run system that once brought people from all over the world to examine its operation. Includes over 270 fascinating illustrations, plans of rolling stock, tickets, transfers, beautiful route maps, public schedules, employee's timetables, rosters of rolling stock and old Buzzers." - from dust jacket. A wonderful and almost unbelievable reference for residents of the now grid-locked lower mainland of British Columbia. Very light wear. Clean, bright and unmarked. Partial lean to spine. Short opening to back panel of dust jacket which is now preserved in a glossy new archival-grade Brodart cover. A high-quality copy.
