Toledo Trolleys (OH) (Images of Rail) (Kirk F. Hise) The Toledo interurbans last ran in December 1949. The interurbans were a great loss to a city that was a major transportation hub in its own right. They would be replaced by buses, but nothing could replace the feeling of riding a trolley to work or taking the family to a movie by trolley. Today there is very little that remains of the interurban lines. Sometimes the old rails are visible when street repairs are being made.

a b Kirk F. Toledo: A History in Architecture, 1890-1914 - Images of America".

The advent of the railroad―a major mode of transportation and an important link to industry―forged the interworkings of a nation, and especially the City of Toledo due to its location on the harbor. In 1850, rail companies began moving in, and Toledo soon became a central connecting point for railroads, bridging the gap between cities like Chicago and Cleveland and Detroit and Cincinnati, making coal available to cities everywhere. Just after the turn of the 20th century, there were 20 different railroads servicing Toledo with four different main stations, providing employment for the town and shaping its commerce and architecture. Today, many of the railroads have been lost to evolution of the city and mergers of the railroad. This book preserves their history through vintage images of trains, rail yards, stations, roundhouses, towers, bridges, and special trains.

If you are a railroad enthusiast (nut might be a better description) in general or if you a resident in or ever lived in northwestern Ohio and like railroads, this book is a must for you. Mr. Hise and Mr Pulhuj have done yeoman work in assembling a detailed collection of pictures of the railroad scene in and around Toledo, Ohio from the late nineteenth century through the present time. While the text is minimal, it is careful and complete. I grew up in a farming community about forty-five miles west of Toledo and was the third generation in my family to be a "rail-nut". I well remember being dragged all over (and under) Toledo by my father in search of yet another rail site. If you or someone you know is a railroad fan, I would heartly recommend this book.

An absolutely wonderful picture book of many of Toledo's old railroad sites. Brought back great memories. A perfect gift for an old B&O telegrapher.

A scapbook of old photos. Many pictures repeated or cropped. All photos are Black & White and most are reprints from The Toledo Blab!
A look at life lived in black & white with no color and very little daylight.

Arcadia Bublishing has about forty titles in their Images of Rail series. Each book has about 200 photographs of the railroad or area covered by the book. I wouldn't have thought that there would have been this many photographs still around. Their authors must a particular nose to go out and smell photographs hidden in all kinds of places.

Anyway, this book is on rail service in and around Toledo. In the 150 years since rail service began there, Toledo has been served by 35 railroads (down to four now). The photographs show Toledo's rail services through bridges, roundhouses, stations, yards, and of course equipment.

I find something wonderful about looking at a photographic history like this. These pictures tell a story different than all the descriptions that anyone could write. They show how it really was. The casual things like the man working in the switch tower wearing a suit. The ladies all in long dresses. The ships hauling coal and iron ore that still have sails.

All these images of times past, that will never come back. The buildings, the equipment that later got torn down or demolished. The book is both a joy and a sadness.
