McGraw Electric Railway Manual Maps, 1913
The maps below are from "McGraw Electric Railway Manual: The Red Book of American Electric Railway Investments" (Edited by Frederic Nicholas). McGraw Publishing Company, Inc., New York City, 1913.
I took this map and georeferenced into my modern Brooklyn map with recent subway lines and stations using ARCGIS. The resultant map shows 1913 Street Railway Routes and its' location near (as much as I could georeference) modern subway stops and stations. Notice some interesting features:
- The Brooklyn Race Tracks are still on the map.
- The Coney Island Creek is quite extensive.
- Notice a strange canal from near Nostrand Avenue near Newkirk to Bergen Beach.
