International Railroad Guide of the Great Central Route.

This map, published in 1855 by W.E. Tunis, shows railroad routes in the north-central and northeastern United States connecting with the Michigan Central and New York Central railroads.

Illustrations include a passenger train, a view of the port in Quebec, Niagara Falls from Point View, and a view of the Mammoth Suspension Bridge.

Niagara Falls was poised to become a vacation get-a-way by 1855. The New York Central Railroad, and other railroads, immediately became interested in securing routes to the falls. The illustrated suspension bridge was completed in the year of this map’s publishing. It was located 2.5 miles downstream from the falls. The bridge spanned 825 feet from Niagara Falls, New York to Niagara Falls, Ontario. Its design, by John Augustus Roebling, engaged two levels; an upper level for train travel, and a lower level for pedestrians and carriages. The suspension bridge stood until 1897 when it was replaced by the steel spandrel braced arch bridge that is present today.
