Ann Arbor Railroad and Steamship Lines -- February 13, 2013

This pair of ads, from Railway Agent, February 1899, describes railroads which ran between Ohio and Michigan.  The Ann Arbor connected Great Lakes steamers with many manufacturing cities. The Detroit and Lima Northern Railway was a major component of the Detroit, Toledo and Ironton Railway when it was created in 1905. The Ann Arbor wound up being controlled by the Detroit, Toledo and Ironton on two different occasions (1905-1908 and 1963-1977).
