Jan. 17, 2018 “Trolley to the Beach” by Eric DuVall

JaTrolley-to-the-Beachn. 17, 2019 at 7 pm at Water’s Edge Faith Community, at 1984 Sunset Cliffs Blvd. in O.B., the Ocean Beach Historical Society’s President Eric DuVall will present “Trolley to the Beach,” a favorite topic of his.
“Trolley to The Beach,” is the story of how dependable electric streetcar service allowed people to live at the beach—specifically Ocean Beach, Point Loma, Pacific Beach and La Jolla—and still be able to work downtown. It is the story of the Point Loma Railroad and The San Diego Electric Railway and how they helped our city to grow. As such, it is also the story of D. C. Collier and John D. Spreckels. Eric will cover an approximately 50-year period from the 1890s through the 1940s, and the story will be, of course, lavishly illustrated. Please join us for this FREE program.
