A fun bird's eye view of Eastern New England showing all the trolley routes that at one time were there. The view shows an area from Newport and Providence north and eastward as far as the western shore of Buzzards Bay Gloucester and Lewiston Maine. In Massachusetts, it goes as far west as Worcester and Fitchburg. Shows trolley routes in red throughout the region. It also notes various parks, lighthouses, historic sites, geographical features, and cities throughout. Popular routes are highlighted with inset maps, these include Springfield-Turners Falls, Worcester-Springfield, Springfield-New York City, Pittsfield and Vicinity, Rochester-Nashua, Portsmouth-Lewiston, and a triangle route from Worchester to Providence to New London and back. A focused inset map of Boston region appears in the upper left. On the verso are advertisements, most of which are for the various trolley or streetcar lines. Scarce.

Retains but removed from original heavy paper covers.
