Planes, Trains & Automobiles – Connecticut’s Early Transportation
“From Paved Roads to Public Money: The Rise of the Automobile”
Essex Historical Society’s popular lecture series continues with “From Paved Roads to Public Money: The Rise of the Automobile in Connecticut” with independent historian Richard DeLuca. This illustrated lecture premiers material of a book presently in production by Mr. DeLuca. Exploring the state’s connection to the auto culture picks up where his last popular history, “Post Roads to Iron Horses,” left off. While the talk will address auto topics around the state, it will also connect to local history and the shoreline region.
