Tuesday, Sept. 11th, 7:30pm: “The Race Underground”
The first of our two-part series, “The Race Underground” chronicles an increasingly populated Boston in the 19th century and its growing need for more reliable, safer, and faster transportation systems than nostalgic horse and trolleys. Boston was a bustling city, competing with New York and Philadelphia to get their streetcars underground and moving. See how they did it, who conceived it, and why it was almost stopped in its tracks.
Length: 53 minutes
