      San Diego Trolleys - presentation and book signing

      The Santee Historical Society announces San Diego Trolleys, a presentation and book signing by Douglas W. Mengers.

      Starting with the first horse-drawn trolleys introduced by the San Diego Streetcar Company in 1886, San Diego’s history includes the growth and decline of several transportation systems. After electricity arrived, San Diego was the site of early experimentation for electric trolleys on the West Coast.

      Our speaker, Douglas W. Mengers, is a San Diego–based historian and archaeologist specializing in historical archaeology, the history of infrastructure and population growth of Southern California, and the history of the San Diego trolley suburbs. He is a Senior Archaeologist/Historian with environmental consulting firm PanGIS, Inc. and also serves on the Board of Directors of the San Diego County Archaeological Society.

      "Images of Rail: San Diego Trolleys" will be available for purchase at the event.

      The Santee Historical Museum will be open before and after the event, from 10am to 2pm.
