"First Dinky" electric car photograph   Save
Clinton League Memory Book
Description: Photograph showing an early electric car, known as "the Dinky," serving the Clintonville neighborhood, 1899. This car line was eventually extended along North High Street from North Columbus through Clintonville and into Worthington, before being absorbed by the Columbus, Delaware and Marion line. This image was included in a "Memory Book" compiled by Mrs. H. V. Cottrell, historian for the Clinton League (sometimes called the Clinton Welfare League) from 1938-1943. The book shows the development of the Clintonville neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio, and records the history of the League. The Clinton League was a women's group founded in 1912 to promote child welfare and later general welfare in Columbus, but which was based in and primarily focused on the area of Clintonville.
