Description: This map shows the number of automobiles per day that traveled Ohio's roadways. 1932-1933. More heavily-traveled roads are represented as thicker lines and less-traveled roads as thinner lines. This traffic volume is an indicator of the growing urbanization of Ohio, and also shows how Ohioans were beginning to turn to the automobile as their primary form of transportation. The full title of the map is "Map of Ohio Showing the Volume and Character of Motor Traffic on the State Highway System, 1932-1933." Insets are provided showing the cities of Cincinnati, Dayton, Springfield, Columbus, Toledo, Canton, Cleveland, Youngstown, Akron and their vicinities. View on Ohio Memory.
