Description

On Tuesday, May 10, 1910, a group of 21 businessmen boarded a chartered

adventure. They traveled 2,000 miles, all on various electric railways, on
a route including 28 different interurban lines plus numerous streetcar
lines in six states.

interurban car and the longest continuous travel by electric railway in
the United States.

of the trip itself. Also included is information on preparations for the

interurban trips.
