Description

This article, published in 1905, discusses the transformation of the Long Island railroad from using steam to being electrically-operated. Trains, during the time period of The House of Mirth, were the largest and fastest transportation systems that enabled people to travel longer distances in a faster amount of time. With this article, it expresses the time in which electricity was being utilized to create swifter, more durable transportation, versus in The Lamplighter when the greatest source of extended-distance travel was by boat on water.
