The Lorenzo Cultural Center presents “The Golden Age of Public Transportation in Detroit,” as part of “The Roaring Twenties: From Riches to Rags” series. In the 1920s, Detroit’s Department of Street Railways successfully moved millions of transit passengers throughout the rapidly expanding city. Kenneth Schramm, transportation historian and author of Detroit’s Street Railways, discusses the electric streetcars and the interurban railway system that once operated throughout Detroit and southeast Michigan.
