Interurban track at the turn of the century

The Indianapolis, Crawfordsville, and Western Interurban Line (1906-1907, Bass Photos) is being built by what is now the Carnegie Museum (it was the Carnegie library at the time). This photograph is at the corner of Wabash (looking east) and Washington Streets. Look at how the scenery has altered. You can see the church steeple, and the house on the Water Street corner seems to be the same as present day.  Notice the street light in the top of the photograph and the horse buggy in front of the museum (library).
