Developing Utah

Image result for developing utah
As cities grow, transportation is implemented to serve those that live in the area. Salt Lake City was no different. As the city developed, track was laid down for street cars. By 1896, how miles of street car track did Salt Lake City have?
a.                  90 miles
b.                  55 miles
c.                   10 miles
d.                  32 miles
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  The Sunday when every family in the Church contributed a nickel to offset Sunday school expenses
Priesthood and auxiliary programs had changed little, although the monthly fast day would be moved from the first Thursday to the first Sunday in 1896, and “Nickel Sunday” was shifted from September to October in 1895, the thirtieth year of Mormon Sunday Schools. (Nickel Sunday was a means of raising funds once a year for Sunday School expenses. Every family would contribute a nickel for each family member. It later became “Dime Sunday” and was eventually discontinued.)
