Beschreibung

The Jewett Car Company was born in Akron, Ohio, in the heyday of theelectric railway boom in the 1890s. The company gained an excellent reputation forits elegant, well-built wooden cars for street railway companies, interurban lines, and rapid transit service. Cities large and small used Jewett cars. Many interurbanlines employed the graceful, arch-windowed, wood interurban that Jewett was famousfor. Competition from automobiles and from larger car builders such as J. G. Brilland the St. Louis Car Company signaled the beginning of the end for Jewett. Thecompany was offered the opportunity to produce munitions for World War I, butrefused when a German nationalist banker who was a major source of financing forJewett refused to allow the company to do anything that would harm Germany. As aresult, the Jewett Car Company died, but the reputation of their product survives tothis day.
