Beginning with the horse car era, 1871 to 1874, the Denver City
Railway's little cars rolled along the streets in Denver. The Denver
Tramway made history between 1885 and 1887 experimenting with the first
electric cars. The Tramway later consolidated all transit companies
into one. Earlier rivalry between companies brought cable cars to the
city. In addition, the narrow-gauge Denver Circle line operated
steam-powered service over city streets. In time, the Denver Tramway
operated electric trolleys in metro Denver. Included are 60 streetcar
route maps and 282 pictures on 352 pages.
