Great Early Broadside For The Providence And Southbridge Accommodation Stage
Great Early Broadside For The Providence And Southbridge Accommodation Stage
Printed 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. The broadside reads, in part: “ … Stage will leave the Manufacturers Hotel, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, at 11 o’clock, A.M. and arrive at Fishersville Depot in time to meet the Cars for Worcester and Norwich, passing the villages of Greenville, Chepachet, Thompson, Masonville, Fishersville, and from thence to New-Boston and Southbridge.

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
