ON THE BACK COVER
A century ago, people did not drive automobiles to get to work, to go shopping, or to visit relatives. Back in the "good old days," people got around by way of mass transit. Today, almost everyone drives a car, but back then, only the more affluent people could afford automobiles. Most people took streetcars to work, rode incline planes or cable cars to climb Cincinnati's steep hills, and traveled on interurban railroads to other cities.
Cincinnati on the Go explores the various modes of transportation that helped people get around in the first half of the 20th century, providing a unique view of the Queen City through the eyes of her everyday commuters. This volume features historic images of river transportation, street railways, city buses, steam railroads, the first automobiles, and wonderful, rare street scenes. Author Allen J. Singer expands on the transportation photographs in the previously released The Cincinnati Subway, inviting the reader up and out of the abandoned subway tunnels and on a visual tour through the historic streets of the Queen City on her riverboats, streetcars, cable cars, railroads, interurban, and buses.
Author Singer is a freelance writer, amateur historian, and avid street railroad enthusiast. Commingling these three areas of interest, Singer's passions have culminated into two illuminating and entertaining books: The Cincinnati Subway: History of Rapid Transit and now, Cincinnati on the Go: History of Mass Transit, both for Arcadia Publishing.
The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
