“Trolley to the Beach”

Everyone is invited to a presentation of “Trolley to the Beach” by Eric DuVall – president of the OB Historical Society – this Thursday, January 17.

It’s a story of how dependable electric streetcar service allowed people to live at the beach— specifically Ocean Beach, Point Loma, Pacific Beach and La Jolla — and still be able to work downtown. It will be this Thursday

It is the story of the Point Loma Railroad and the San Diego Electric Railway and how they helped our city to grow.  As such, it is also the story of D. C. Collier and John D. Spreckels.   Eric will cover an approximately 50-year period from the 1890s through the 1940s, and the story will be, of course, lavishly illustrated.
