Photo Gallery: Early Day OKC Collection 12/13

HISTORIC EARLY DAYS / OKLAHOMA CITY, OK / STREET SCENES / STREET CARS:  Oklahoma City was rocked by revolution in 1903.  The revolution was in the nature and direction of residential development in Oklahoma City.  Prior to 1903, the future capital was a walking city, a town with no public transportation, where the 12,000 residents had to live close to their places of work.  Someone living at NW 6 and robinson was a suburbanite.  In 1903, all that changed with a single addition to the city landscape -- the streetcar system.  It was a revolution that destroyed the confines of the walking city.  Published on 08/15/1987 in The Daily Oklahoman.  Original photo arrived in the library 11/24/1939.
