Reading L.A.: Robert Fogelson Examines A City "Hooked On Growth" ("Fogelson provides probably the best chapters ever written on the rise and fall of the city’s "interurban," or electric streetcar, networks. Those chapters also turn out to be a study -- since the streetcars were privately owned -- of the relationship in L.A.'s early years between mass transit and speculative real-estate development. Fogelson counts L.A.'s failure to take over those rail networks in the 1920s, as they began to lose money with the rise of the car, as one of the city's most historic missed opportunities.")
