06/06/10 82 W, 1 I - + 13 - 7 Raleigh Street Car Map, 1914


The Raleigh Connoisseur recently blogged about trolley tracks uncovered on Edenton Street. They linked to a digital map from 1914, which shows street car routes. Been wanting to see one of these for some time!

Here's the map overlaid with Google, as well as the original. The routes included north (Glenwood Avenue), west (Hillsboro Street), northeast (Oakwood), due east, west to Union Station, and two spurs south. Below is a medium-resolution, annotated version of same. Click to enlarge.
