As we prepare for the launch of the Milwaukee Streetcar in 2018, why not take a chance to look back at the rapid transit system of the past? Larry Sakar, author of Speedrail: Milwaukee’s Last Rapid Transit?, will present a history of Rapid Transit interurbans in the Milwaukee area until service ended 65 years ago.
When: Saturday 6/25/2016 from 2:00-3:00 pm
Where: Centennial Hall's Loos Room, 733 N 8th St, Milwaukee, WI 53233.
Please register online or call (414) 286-3011. Street parking is free on Saturday, but time limits apply.
If you can't attend the program (or perhaps if you arrive with extra time beforehand), you can also check out a display on the Rapid Transit interurbans in the main hallway of the second floor of the Central Library.
