The Best Technical Boston Streetcar Books !

Postby 3rdrail » Mon Mar 04, 2013 11:14 pm

I was just strolling over at Ebay. Just to let you know that there is part of the set of "Streetcars of Boston" by O.R.Cummings for sale there on a "Buy-It-Know" for $9.99 per volume ! These volumes, written by car type, are the very best source of information about these cars. I feel very lucky to have the whole set as they are rare. Nobody writes them like O.R.Cummings ! I'm not associated with this sale in any way- just saw them and wanted to let you know.

We have them at my library they are extremely good. I have been trying to obtain a complete collection. I am missing #4. That's okay, I like the hunt.
