An Ordinance Regulating Automobiles On The Streets Of Eagle Pass, Texas. (Cover Title)

by Texas City Commissioners Of The City Of Eagle Pass

First edition. 6 1/4" x 3 1/2" printed wrappers, n. p. (16 pp.). An ephemeral work that prints regulations for automobile traffic in Eagle Pass, Texas, a border town slightly southwest of San Antonio on the Rio Grande. Many of the rules address cars for hire in town, and attempt to govern fares for various common trips, including to locations in Mexico. It should cost fifty cents for one passenger to cross into Piedras Negras, for example, and much more to various mining and ranching operations in the area. Other rules discuss mandatory hand signals and tail lights, and attempt to organize "jitney" services in town. Not in OCLC. Minor wear to foot of spine and a tiny corner chip to bottom front cover corner, else a very good, tight and internally clean booklet of early transportation guide lines.
