Getting About is a 1934 in depth survey of the Detroit Street Railway system. A newsreel circa 1925 that includes a hair-raising ride on the N.Y. El. Manhattan is a most unusual 1920's tour of that borough. It was lovingly photographed essay with every shot taken from the El or has the El in every shot. Safe Highways is a zany production of the Chicago Surface Lines. It graphically shows you should not drive around street cars in the roaring 20's.
The classic Vanishing El shows the waning days of Manhattan's Third Avenue Elevated when all of its sisters were gone. A fitting concludes to this tape of traction gems. 55 minutes. b/w.
