Dryades Streetcar Maims Child

Stop 8 of 9 in the Streetcars and their Historian Michael Mizell-Nelson tour

The late journalist and historian Charles "Pie" Dufour, in what may have been his last formal interview, describes the maiming of a child on the Dryades Line in the early 1920s.

In an era when urban planners tout streetcars as engines of urban redevelopment, it is good to remember how dangerous these urban railroads could be.
