Cincinnati Streetcar Heritage By Kenneth C. Springirth. A photographic essay of the Cincinnati, Ohio streetcar system. The Cincinnati Street Railway Company became full-running in 1896 with the last run in 1951, when the Toronto Transit Commission purchased 52 of the PCC cars with the last one taken out of service in 1982. Because of concern over corrosion of underground conduits and water pipes, the streetcar lines were required to have a double overhead wire within city limits. Chock full of interesting color and black/white photos with captions under each one. 128 pages. Softbound.
