Miles Shugar, on the staff of the Massachusetts Historical Commission, will discuss how Bostonians have tackled problems with mass transportation for the past 200 years. Explore the challenges of Boston's early mass transit systems through artifacts, maps, and photographs! The talk will highlight archaeological investigations at the Metropolitan Horse Railroad site in Roxbury Crossing. See how horses pulled sleds and steam cars pushed plows during crippling winters, and teams of men pulled cars when horses could not! Come learn how our forefathers dealt with some of the same problems that the MBTA deals with today, from crowding to crashes, from snow to strikes.
