Streetcar Lines of the Hub: The 1940s

Regular price $39.95

Widely praised, this book is the most comprehensive book ever written on the streetcar routes that served the city of Boston, and the cities and towns of the Metropolitan Transit Authority, during what is considered the heyday of electric transit in Boston. This book covers all 52 routes of the 1940s—every car house and station, plus Eastern Massachusetts lines to Stoneham and Quincy. Nearly 500 photos (many in color, which is rare for that time) plus maps and diagrams accompany an extensive narrative that explores the “ins and outs” of the system as many fondly remember it—a system which was the foundation of today’s multi-modal public transportation network.
