Tucked at the bottom of Maria Saporta’s recent report from the launch of the Atlanta Streetcar, there’s this great map of the Atlanta Streetcar system from the 1940s that you’ve gotta see.
CLICK HERE for the high-res version of the map, so you can zoom in close and see all the different trolley and bus routes all over the city!
Here’s a quick peek at the Decatur/Druid Hills/Avondale area to get you started.
Solid green lines are the trolley lines, and the dashed red lines are bus lines. (And if you run across the dashed green “Trackless Trolley” line – like up in Buckhead – it was basically an electric bus that drew its electricity from overhead wires.)
