Hooves & Rails
A History Of The Tucson Street Railway (1897-1906)
by W. Eugene Caywood in collaboration with Keith Glaab
In the late nineteenth century, Tucson was a growing
town with a strong desire to project a metropolitan image.
One key to continued development was the establishment of dependable
public transportation to move Tucsonans around their newly bustling
city. This is the story of the first streetcar line: the horse-drawn
Tucson Street Railway.
