Forgotten Railroads that Transformed Winthrop, Orient Heights, and Revere Beach, Massachusetts
This excellent new book from Winthrop native William Lieberman covers the little-known steam railroads that competed to serve—and sometimes initiate—real estate ventures along the beaches and marshlands northeast of Boston. This book recounts the stories of these railroads, both standard and narrow gauge, and the communities that grew up around them—not only their construction and operation, but also the people associated with them and the inevitable corporate intrigues. This will appeal both to railroad enthusiasts and to those intrigued by the history of the Boston area. A must-have!
