Historic Streetcars Film Tues, June 7, at Maury Elementary (13th & Constitution)

Historic Streetcars Film

June 7 at 6:45 pm • Maury Elementary School

The CHRS June 7 membership forum, moderated by Monte Edwards, will feature Washington’s historic streetcars. Laura Trieschmann, from EHT Traceries, will talk about the history of Washington’s streetcars, including its car barns. We will see a film showing Washington’s streetcars in operation during the 1950s, and Monte Edwards and Meg Maguire will answer questions about historic streetcars. Please come and enjoy the evening, and, if you rode the old streetcars, share your experiences with the gathering.

Maury Elementary School on the corner of Constitution Avenue and 13th Street, NE, has offered its multi-purpose room for the occasion. Please enter on 13th Street. The doors will open promptly at 6:45 pm with the presentation to begin after light refreshments and a very short business meeting.

This event is free and the public is encouraged to attend; no reservations are necessary.

For more information, e-mail or call 543-0425.
