A fairly crudely-drawn map of St. Louis’ extensive streetcar network, reaching far past the city limits to the cities of Florissant and St. Charles, as well as to the pleasures of the Meramec Highlands and Lake Park. Like many maps of St. Louis from this period, the map is oriented with north to the right so that “downtown” is literally at the bottom of the map.
Of particular note is the message at the bottom of the map, proudly proclaiming, “The ratio of fatalities in 1915 was one fatality to 89 million Passengers. A STREET CAR IS A PRETTY SAFE PLACE.” Using the total annual ridership of 356,814,595 passengers, it’s pretty simple to work out that this equates to four deaths, which is pretty safe, all things considered. Interestingly, there’s no mention of injuries, which could have been a much more substantial number.
