The self-described "rubber capital of the world," Akron was the home of numerous rubber factories that made tires for America's burgeoning, automobile industry. Many of the raw materials needed to create rubber arrived by rail, and the finished products moved to market in freight cars. The city's major railroads included the Baltimore and Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Erie Railroads, but three regional carriers, the Akron, Canton and Youngstown, the Wheeling and Lake Erie, and the Akron and Barberton Belt, also served Akron-area industries. Written in cooperation with the Akron Railroad Club, this book chronicles the ever-changing Akron railroad scene since the club's founding in 1936.
Craig Sanders is president of the Akron Railroad Club and has written two other railroad history books. He also has written articles for Trains magazine. A resident of University Heights, Sanders teaches journalism at Cleveland State University. Members of the Akron Railroad Club contributed most of the more than 200 images appearing in this book.
The Images of Rail series celebrates the history of rail, trolley, streetcar, and subway transportation across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the people, places, and events that helped revolutionize transportation and commerce in 19th- and 20th-century America. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
