The MTA of 50 years ago

Thanks to http://www.universalhub.com for the tip

Mike posts a pre-1955 map of Boston’s rapid-transit system.

I’ve seen this map before at the Trolley Museum in Maine and it shows the then MTA as it was after the Blue Line was extended to Revere in the early 1950’s.

The map shows in detail the old elevated Orange Line which is far different than the modern version. This was the MTA the Kingston Trio sang about back in 1959.
