Description

Louisville is within a night's ride of 72 per cent of the commerce of the United States and 42,000,000 People

Interesting map of Louisville, Kentucky, highlighting the location of the railroad lines, major manufacturers, and freight houses in metropolitan Louisville, Kentucky.  The map's major features are overlaid in black and red, over a map of Louisville on the Ohio River, which is presented in a faint pale blue, in order to highlight the locations of importance.

On the verso are photographs and a long list of the industries served by the Kentucky & Indiana Terminal Railroad Company, with promotional information extolling the virtues of Louisville.

Rarity

OCLC locates 1 example (Indiana Historical Society), which they date to 1928.  We date our example 1936 based upon the date which appears on panel #10 on the verso of the map.
