Great Early Broadside For The Providence And Southbridge Accommodation StagePrinted Broadside for “Providence and Southbridge, Accommodation Stage.” 15” x 22”. Wonderful images of a horse-drawn carriage and an early passenger steam engine. Ornate border.

Passengers wishing to go to any of the above named places, will find it to their advantage to call on the subscriber at the Manufacturers Hotel, Providence … ” While it was far below the standards of England and France, New England’s highway system remained the best in the U.S. into the 1840s. In spite of its rather low standing in relation to other transportation systems, this period of the 19th Century remained a transformative one for American transportation; it was during this period that the railroad overtake the slower coach and ferry systems that had been operating throughout eastern U.S. This broadside, bearing both a horse-drawn stage coach and a steam-engine, undoubtedly comes from this important period of American transportation history. Mounted to another sheet. Some very slight soiling and wrinkling, not affecting overall appearance. Overall Extremely Fine. $4,500.00
