Portland light rail system map, 1923

Regular price $30.00 $0.00

Modern Portland and the Willamette Valley have a large, successful light rail system built in the late 20th century. But it was even bigger in the 1920s, when it was owned by five competing railway operators. (The system went all the way to Corvallis and Eugene, 100 miles away.) This was only feasible before modern roads: as buses, paved roads and cars got better, there was simply less need to have a 100-mile-long interurban rail line, and the system began to close even before the Great Depression.
