Old Home Town - 100 years ago

November 1, 2008


From the Lawrence Daily World for Nov. 1, 1908: "Whitsed Laming, asking for a local franchise from the city for an electric car line, said his company can only build to the foot of the university hill because of the steep grade. University regents are eager to secure the line and get the work under way. There is some evidence that service can be extended up the hill at a later date but it will be a matter of money, officials say."
