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. Returning, Will leave Southbridge Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, at 6 o’clock, A.M. and arrive at Fishersville Depot in time for the morning Cars for Worcester, and Norwich, and arrive at Providence at 1 o’clock, P.M., in time for the Boston, Taunton, and New Bedford Cars, and the Woonsocket, Pawtucket, Bristol, Warwick, and Coventry Stages. Passengers, For Killingly, Pomfret, Woodstock, Dudley, Webster, Oxford, Charlton, Sturbridge, Brimfield, Munson, and Palmer, can be accommodated by this Line, cheaper than by any other Line. 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.

One of the last Shaker songs to be ever written was composed by Sister Lillian Phelps at Canterbury in 1914. The lasted printed Shaker hymnal was published at Canterbury, New Hampshire in 1908 and was entitled, “A Shaker Hymnal.” Since then only a few Shaker songs have been written. One of these was penned by Sister Phelps as late as 1959. Founded by a woman, Mother Ann Lee(s) (1736-1784), the Shakers have always believed in the “equality of the sexes in all departments of life.” America’s last Shaker community, the Canterbury Shaker Village, in Canterbury, New Hampshire, was in its twilight at the time of Sister Phelps’ death. Phelps’ few possessions are sterling examples of Shaker art at its finest.
