This history of street and interurban electric railways of
Louisiana outlines and accentuates a fascinating and marvelous period of growth
enjoyed by the state's larger cities, the interval of time between the 1870s
and the late 1920s.
Hennick details street railways from all over the state; from
Alexandria to Baton Rouge, Lake Charles to Shreveport. He also gives special
attention to the major rail lines, such as the O-K Line and the Burnside
Tramway, and the major companies investing in the street railway projects, such
as the St. Tammany New Orleans Railways and Ferry Co., and the
Southwestern Traction Power Co.
Within Street Railways of Louisiana the readers will
find not solely the story of the trolley car in Louisiana, but will also
understand the attraction, the romance, and the value of the era in which the
mule car and electric streetcar flourished.
