Detroit subway system proposal, 1918

Regular price $50.00 $0.00

While I was looking for a copy of Detroit's ill-fated 1974 subway plan, I came across a completely different curiosity: Detroit's ill-fated 1918 subway plan.  At the time, Detroit's streetcar system was controlled by the Detroit United Railway, and the mayor, "Big Jim" Couzens, would only support the construction of a mass transit system if it was fully under public control.  The City Council supported the subway bill, but Couzens vetoed it, and the subway plan went into the trash can.  It's a fascinating look at what might have been, had it been built.
