Turn of the Century

Ever wondered where the population centers were at the turn of the century after the railroads had taken hold? Well here's your map. Very cool.

I love how California has only 7 towns over 8000 people (San Fran, Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose, Stockton, Sacramento, Fresno, and Los Angeles?) and Texas has only 10 or 11 (El Paso, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Tyler, Paris, Texarkana, Palestine, and Temple)!

Cool perspective.
