It's nice to see a good collection of color photographs of this former extensive transit operation. Because the system was shut down in 1954, there was a narrow window between World War II and then for color photography of the trolley lines. See the cars doing their work in all kinds of weather across the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan landscape.

Until 1954, Minneapolis and St. Paul were served by the yellow, home-built streetcars of Twin City Rapid Transit Company. Drawing on the Minnesota Streetcar Museum's collection, this is the first ever Color book to tell the story of this extensive, well-run system.
