Joe McKendry: History of the Boston Subway

Monday, April 24, 2017

Come hear about Boston's first "Big Dig" with Joe McKendry, the author and illustrator of Beneath the Streets of Boston: Building America's First Subway. Joe will share what he learned while researching his book about the workers who dug miles of tunnels by hand, using only picks and shovels. You'll also hear about the the perception of underground transportation by the turn-of-the-century public, and how the system served as a model for the rest of the country.
