h/t to Avidor for the illustration.

We’re having another Virtual Happy Hour this Thursday. Plus, we’re going to kick off a new presentation feature, where folks stop in and present info about a topic they like.

First up, streetcar history expert Aaron Issacs is going to share a video of a 1950s streetcar trip from Minneapolis to Richfield.

Stop by anytime 6-8pm and hang out. The presentation will be in the middle somewhere.

See you then!

Streetcars were kind of like buses but they ran on rails and electricity.
