Come meet the authors of “Iron Roads of the Monadnock Region Vol.3” on Saturday, May 20th from 10 am -12 pm at the Historical Society of Cheshire County on Main Street in downtown Keene.
Iron Roads Volume III is a pictorial volume prepared to complement and enrich Volumes I and II with 300 recently discovered, mostly unpublished photos. The images are rich in historic landscapes, railroad action, and people. Thumbnail historical reviews of the railroads discussed in the two earlier volumes are also included. The remains of abandoned railroads, slowly fading away, grow fewer by the year. Many former railroad structures and landscapes are scarcely recognizable at all today. Images in Iron Roads bring “railroad days” in the Monadnock Region back to life and come as close as possible to transporting the reader back to those days. Iron Roads is a ticket-to-ride. All aboard!
