William C. Barrow, Head of Special Collections, will provide a presentation titled "Cleveland in the Era of Streetcars." Before the rise of the automobile, urban areas like Cleveland were connected by a vast network of street railways and the cities in a region by a wider network of interurban railways. In the nineteenth century they were horse-drawn, but during the 1890s the power of electrified streetcars opened nearby farmlands for new suburban development.
