Electrical Experimenter (06:04) August 1918

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Those who do not use the great subway systems of the larger cities such as New York are prone to forget some of the really wonderful engineering work carried out in the bowels of Mother Earth. Three great arteries of underground traffic now meet at the corner of Broadway and 42nd Street, better known as "Times Square," and it is at this point that the new Brooklyn Rapid Transit subway has been constructed to run under the present subway."
This is the August 1918 issue of Electric Experimenter. The cover art and feature story is “Aerial Mono-Flyer of the Future.” Also in this issue is a story by Hugo Gernsback, “The Magnetic Storm.” Articles include the new use of electric sirens in Paris to warn of air raids, an exposition planned for New York, and an article about the subways in New York.
