The Secret Subway PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Secret Subway free pdf From an acclaimed author and a "New York Times" Best Illustrated artist comes the fascinating, little-known and true! story of New York City s first subway. New York City in the 1860s was a mess: crowded, disgusting, filled with garbage. You see, way back in 1860, there were no subways, just cobblestone streets. That is, until Alfred Ely Beach had the idea for a fan-powered train that would travel underground. On February 26, 1870, after fifty-eight days of drilling and painting and plastering, Beach unveiled his masterpiece and throngs of visitors took turns swooshing down the track. "The Secret Subway" will wow readers, just as Beach s underground train wowed riders over a century ago."
