Old Maps Show Exactly How Much Traveling Used To Suck
Are we there yet? How about now? Now?
Traveling cross-country in 1800? Hope you're ready to walk forever.
Even with a horse, travel was long and hard. Most people never bothered.
By 1830, travel was revolutionized as passenger trains became more widespread.
But train speeds capped out at 30 mph, so travel was still time consuming. (But fancy!)
A hundred years later, things were much improved.
By now, trains were topping out at speeds of 99 mph. Zoooooom!
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
