Historic Railroad Map of the United States & Canada - 1912

Canadian Pacific Railway and connecting routes.

In January of 1912 New Mexico became the 47th state and in February of that year Arizona was added as the 48th state.

Alaska was organized as a United States territory later in 1912.

Henry Flagler is credited with bringing the railways into southern Florida in the late 1800's from St. Augustine southward. His railroad enabled towns like Daytona Beach, Palm Beach, and Miami Beach to prosper and grow.

He successfully turned his Florida East Coast Railway into the Overseas Railroad by continuing to build southward all the way to Key West using a series of viaducts. From Key West passengers and freight could be easily loaded onto ferries for the short ride to Havana, Cuba. On January 22, 1912, Flagler himself rode into Key West on the newly completed line to much fanfare; finally achieving his goal of over 30 years.

In November of 1912, Governor of New Jersey Woodrow Wilson was elected president of the United States.

This map was published in 1912 by Poole Bros. It shows cities, towns, waterways, and railroad routes of 1912.
