Interurban Electric Railway   Save
Baker Art Gallery
Description: This image shows an Interurban Electric Railway station in downtown Columbus. Stations like this were the places where people would go to travel to other neighborhoods with a degree of convenience and a much lower price than other forms of transportation. They remained popular until the invention of another practical form of transportation that rapidly took hold, the first modern cars. Eventually this particular form of transportation was overtaken and put out of business. View on Ohio Memory.
