July 6, 1999


IN 1899

On July 6, 1899, the Lawrence World told of the sale of the street car line for $6,000 to a Mr. William Winner of Leavenworth. Citing Winner's experience in constructing street car lines elsewhere in Kansas, the World stated, "There is no question but what today's sale of the street car line will prove a good thing for Lawrence." What the result of the sale will be however depends entirely upon how the citizens of Lawrence encourage and cooperate with the new owner in his endeavor to promote a better line in this city."
