Throwback Thursday


This photo, submitted by Brad Aleshire, shows the Interurban Depot in West Jefferson, date unknown. In 1915, 15,500 miles of interurban railways were operating in the United States. Most roads and town streets were unpaved, and transportation was by horse-drawn carriages and carts. The interurban provided vital transportation links between the city and countryside. By 1930, most interurbans were gone, with few surviving into the 1950s. Do you have a throwback photo to share? Email the editor at achaffin@civitasmedia.com.
