|Collection Name||Transportation Collection|
This is an artificial archival collection, meaning that it was assembled by the Staten Island Historical Society from various sources (known and unknown), rather than an organic collection from a particular family or organization. The collection is approximately 3 linear feet in size. Materials are mostly paper-based, with some photographic items.
The collection is arranged alphabetically by subject, and mostly includes material related to transportation on Staten Island. The largest subject categories include Bridges, Buses, Highways & Roads, and Railroads (including the SIRT). Other subject categories include Automobile, Board of Estimate, Canals, Ferries, Horses & Horse-drawn Vehicles, Port Authority of NY & NJ, Trolleys, Tunnels, Ships, Subways (including Subway Tunnel), Transit Committee, and Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority.
(Keywords: Staten Island Rapid Transit, Steamship, Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Businesses, Tompkins Bus Corporation, Schooner Yacht Meteor, Hamburg-American Line, White Star Line, Maps, New York)
