What kinds of social forces caused industry to spread far beyond the central city and alter the face of the emerging suburbs?

The AUTOMOBILE! beyond the central city and alter the face of the emerging suburbs?

  • In the 1920s, “some city officials blissfullysuggested that the automobile would actually decrease traffic congestion” (Jackson 174).

    This may have been the case at first, but any decrease in traffic’s congestion was short-lived.

  • Business owners and city planners, realizing that “a central location [was] no longer a good one for…business” now had to reconfigure “to serve vehicular rather than pedestrian traffic” (Jackson 174, 258).

suburban sprawl.
