An electric streetcar system in Albuquerque was constructed in 1904 to replace the horse-drawn trolleys. Two streetcar companies were established, one for the downtown Albuquerque and Old Town Plaza areas (the Albuquerque Traction Company) and another for the Huning Highlands-University area (the Highland). By 1908 six miles of track linked downtown Albuquerque to Old Town Plaza, with lines running north to the Lumber Mill, east to the Huning Highlands and the University, and south to Los Barelas The streetcar shown in this 1918 photograph was operated by female conductors known as "motorettes". In 1929 the electric streetcar system was abandoned and replaced by buses.
