Beginning in 1884 entrepreneurs, local citizens and bankers invested to build the best electric railway system in the United States. The Rise and Fall of these systems was remarkable and changed social norms and habits. It provided entertainment leisure time and changed the work culture. This book addresses the entire state interurban system chronologically, and indexes all company names. Exclusive black & white photographs are provided throughout the text to illustrate each company.
