TitleTram layout and economic location in Coruna, 1914-1960
This paper aims to examine the relationship between the tram network and the location of economic activities in A Coruña, as a first step in the measure of the possible explanatory factors that determined the intra-urban economic location system. In order to do this I have selected three significant dates: the World War I (1914), which corresponds to the beginning of the tram’s electrification in the town, the pre-Spanish Civil war period (1935), and the start of the accelerated development of the Spanish economy, which coincided with the liberalization policy (1960). This last stage meant the definitive dismantling of the trams in the town (1962). The purpose of this methodology is to allow us to determine the medium-term influence of tram branch-line building on the spatial structure of the urban economy.
