Included is footage of the Springfield Street Railway, Holyoke Street Railway, the Boston Elevated and the narrow gauge Boston, Revere Beach and Lynn. Includes scenes of the Carlise Fire of 1937, which was the worst fire in history, the 1938 major blizzard, flood and hurricanes. Look at America in the 1930s of the day-to-day activity of the pedestrians in the city with trolley cars and interurban cars, the architectures of the buildings, the automobiles of the time, handling of snow with sweeper cars clearing the roads, construction and maintenance activity, fan trips and even the scrapping of the cars and so much more. 58 minutes of fabulous black and white film with some color that was preserved for viewing. Great narration!
