    I am the founder of the Des Moines Streetcar Friends, and have pictures and maps of the Streetcar Era, showing where the tracks were laid…If you are interested in obtaining a copy of one of these maps, please feel free to email me, or give me a call at (515) 987-8867…
    If you will notice in Saturday’s DM Register (June 18), there will be an article of the grand opening of our 2250 sq ft Streetcar exhibit at the State Historical Building on E 6th & Locust…

      I am a Golden K Kiwanian and a native of Des Moines. Enjoyed your program and would like to obtain a copy of the Streetcar maps.

      My father was a conductor on the east 14th street run back in the early 1940’s. We also lived on E 14th at that time (between Thomoson and Guthery) and our father would clang the bell when he would go by the house. I am looking forward to seeing the exhibit at the Historical Building this spring.
