These small, light, steel streetcars were designed for one-man operation, which made them a boon to labor-strapped cities during World War I and economical to operate during the Great Depression. Originally called 'Safety Cars' to emphasize that they were safe to ride, even without a conductor, they are better known as 'Birneys' after their co-designer, Charles O. Birney.
