Riding the Rails…..Denver’s Rails

Registration Required....   email to Info@TheHRHS.org

 

Speaker:  Kevin Pharris

Our speaker, Kevin, will be presenting a slide presentation tour of the city’s glorious transit past as well as the modern improvements that are getting people onto the rails once again. 

As part of this exciting journey, we will learn about /visit many familiar places and events in Denver’s History. 

And on this journey to the past, we will meet some Streetcar riders, real and perhaps, not so real?

Join us for an evening for all things lost, from public transportation to pulses!

About our speaker:  Kevin Pharris used to teach English, then tripped and fell into history, which was a fateful moment for it brought him face to face with many people, places, and yes, even the ghosts of Denver (and he's a professional scaredy-cat.)  There has been some compensation, however; he has gotten to learn all about the streetcar history of Denver.  Books will be available for purchase and signing following the presentation
