Detroit electric interurban railways, 1913

Regular price $30.00 $0.00

In 1913, Detroit was booming, and was the cutting edge of the industrial era.  It was what Silicon Valley is today.  But in 1913, the automobile was a brand-new technology-- the Ford Model T had only gone into production in 1908, and the freeway era was still a half-century away.  In this period, Detroiters got around the region by train- we'd recognize it today as a form of electric light rail- and travel times would be competitive with modern driving.  The catch, of course, is that you were forced to use the Detroit United Railway, which was every bit the evil monopolist that people accused it of being.
