„VIntage Detroit Railroad Signal“

from the gallery of ushkaphotography
Description:

A vintage railroad crossing signal still in operation in industrial Detroit, USA. Railroads have been vital in the history of the population and trade of rough and finished goods in the state of Michigan. While some coastal settlements had previously existed, the population, commercial, and industrial growth of the state further bloomed with the establishment of the railroad.
The state's proximity to Ontario, Canada aided the transport of goods in a smooth east-west trajectory from the eastern shore of Lake Michigan toward Montreal and Quebec.
Major railroads in the state, prior to 20th century consolidations, had been the Michigan Central Railroad and the New York Central Railroad.
