Interurban Electric Railways

Nice writeup on the Lake Shore Electric but few folks remember the "Green Line", The Cleveland & Southwestern, that ran right in front of where the library is today. Wave a rolled-up newspaper at the next car headed in the direction you wished to go and the motorman would stop, pick you up and away you'd go. Cleveland to the east and Elyria, Oberlin & Norwalk to the west, the outside world beckoned.
