By H. Roger Grant. 2016

This interesting book makes the connection between the vast number of interurban lines in the USA and the development of local economies through opening up connections between rural communities and cities. With most lasting less than 30 years, the supremacy of these lines of communication rapidly waned as America fell in love with the automobile.

B5 hardback; 192 pages, 68 black & white pictures, four maps.
