A Guide for a New Way to and from New York City

Baltimore: B&O RR, 1926. Apparently the B&O stopped using the Pennsylvania Station in 1926 and, with no tunnel rights available, began a program for "...better transportation of passengers to and from New York City." The passenger line now ended at Jersey City, where passengers were herded onto "commodious and comfortable" motor coaches, then loaded onto railroad barges for the ride across the river, either to Liberty St. or 23rd St., and then on to various points in Manhattan. Illustrated with photographs of the coaches and their happy passengers, and opening to show a large map of Manhattan and NJ showing the coach routes, major hotels, and attractions. Road map style pamphlet with folds; color illustrated covers. A good copy. Item #012762

Price: $55.00
