Continuing my discussion of books available from our Gift Shop or online by using PayPal ( … let me introduce you to one from Rhode Island — titled All Aboard: History of Mass Transit in Rhode Island by Scott Molloy.

Full of tales of life on the road, All Aboard is a visual tour of one of the most important industries of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. From horsepower to streetcar parks and a railroad strike that brought out the state militia, the state’s transportation history is brought to life here through a collection of vintage images.
