Going Electric: Streetcars and Interurbans in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley

The Burnaby Village Museum will be hosting an all-day event on Saturday, September 29th in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Interurban 1223 tram. The event starts at 11:30am with a talk from legendary historian of the BC Electrical Railway Henry Ewert and end with a talk by me on the streetcar renaissance in North America. Please check out the Burnaby Village Museum’s website for more information and to register for one or all of the talks and events. I promise to have a pretty PowerPoint.
