Ballrooms, Big Bands, Radio and Railways

Ratings: (0)|Views: 269 |Likes:
When amusement parks were king. Amusement parks arose along the railways, as railways were the then public transit system. Many of these railways were electric. In the center of every amusement park, there was a Dance Pavilion. Historians write that Los Angeles' then Big Red Cars and Yellow Cars were the finest public transit systems in America. I remember them. Together the Big Red Cars and Yellow Cars covered a thousand miles of track. Smaller versions covered all of the United States and Canada. Dancers rode these trolleys to the Dance Pavilions. Musicians noticed the traffic of these dancers. These musicians became known as Territory Bands as they increasingly modified their music for the dancers. These dancers provided employment and an income for thousands of musicians.
