Scope Note

This is a bound volume containing newspaper clippings on the Boston Subway. The articles are hand-dated and arranged chronologically. The first articles thus deal with the subway’s construction, and the later articles describe its function, enhancements and expansion. Some of the articles also contain illustrations depicting rail stations, subway riders, and system maps. There are also several features on conductors. Several of the articles are opinion pieces about the proper use and potential changes to the system.
