The railroad was the Internet of the late 19th century. Then, as today, technology was transforming America. Binding people together. Making fortunes for inventors and entrepreneurs. Creating jobs for hordes of workers.
George Westinghouse was a hero in an age of heroes. Even in a period exploding with scientific creativity, he was hailed as the world's leading inventor-engineer. Patenting useful devices before he was old enough to vote, he worked throughout his career at the cutting edge of technology. His legacy has maintained its momentum for well over a century, and the Westinghouse name continues to denote technical innovation and practical application.
