Florida Conversations: Tampa’s Historic Streetcars

April 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Tampa Streetcar 3D scan by USF
Digital Preservation and Urban Heritage

Learn about Tampa’s historic streetcar system, an iconic element of the city’s urban heritage that connects the past to the present. Residents and visitors may be familiar with the modern replica streetcars that traverse Tampa, but there are two additional archival streetcars from the early 20th century that rarely make it out of Hillsborough County’s carbarn. This presentation discusses a University of South Florida project to scan the streetcars and stations to create a digital archive for the City of Tampa.
