In the coming weeks, I will be posting about the history of transportation, particularly public transit, in Cambridge, from toll roads to the horse-drawn street railway to the Red Line.
There are many routes this post could go in (pardon the pun), from the 1830's legal controversy over the right to build toll bridges to the 1960's origin of young people hanging out in "the pit" surrounding Harvard Station. Depending on what I decide to cover, this may be one post or a series.
Do you have any questions about the history of transportation in the area? Are there subjects in particular you want to know more about? Please let me know in the comments!
