Happy 2018! STM is welcoming in the new year with a special shout out to one of our favorite authors...Kenneth Springirth!!
At the end of 2017 Kenneth self-published a new book, Chicago Streetcar Memories. You will not find this treasure on AMAZON! He is dedicated in his support of STM by making us a favorite seller of his many fine works. Go ahead and give her a google...
It's almost impossible to find a copy anywhere else, and ours are SIGNED!!
Kenneth also published two other titles in 2017 via Font Hill Publishing, Cincinnati Streetcar Heritage and Baltimore Streetcar Memories. These beauties are also signed especially for STM shoppers and members.
Kenneth C. Springirth is the author of 35 books on railroads and streetcar lines including Honoring the New York Central Railroad, Erie to Cleveland by Trolley, Remembering the Erie Lackawanna Railroad, Jamestown to Buffalo by Trolley, Pennsylvania’s Trolley Heritage, Massachusetts Trolley Heritage, and a children’s book ABC’s on the Rails. Springirth has an interest in rail history as his father was a streetcar motorman in Philadelphia, and his grandfather was a street car motorman in Washington D.C. A native of Philadelphia and a 1957 graduate of Lansdowne Aldan High School, Springirth commuted to Drexel Institute of Technology (now Drexel University) in Philadelphia by trolley car, subway, and sometimes commuter rail graduating in 1962.
Kenneth has shown great commitment to STM. This is the 2nd book he has sent to us FIRST for our members, hot off the press. He has attended Transit Day and done a book signing for us. He has graciously included STM in his book, Massachusetts Trolley Heritage (including Lowell) and spent time at both museums documenting our collections and preserving us in photography and print!
