Tonight CERA presents a program of vintage color and B&W film of the CA&E and CRT from the DVD archives of MCERA Bruce Moffat. The original films were expertly digitized by MCERA Walter Keevil and were shot by several different photographers over the years.  There’s an abundance of different types of colorful equipment—steel and wood—and scenes from times long gone.

So be sure to be with us for an evening of Chicago traction films that will evoke memories for older members and pique the interest of newer ones.
