Railroads of Milwaukee, by John Kelly.
In this new 9″ x 11¾” 264-page book, 68 pages of which are in full color, author John Kelly explores the fascinating history of the city’s railroads, starting with the Milwaukee & Waukesha in 1847. By 1873 the Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway—later the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific (“The Milwaukee Road”) opened a line to Chicago and the railroad was on its way.
There is also detailed discussion on the Chicago and Northwestern, America’s Fastest Interurban, Electric railways, Lake boats and the Beer Line.
