This very colorful map of the route of the Brockton & Plymouth Street Railway is a wonderful feature of the guidebook that highlights many of the historic attractions of Duxbury, Kingston and Plymouth. The route of the street railway ran from Manomet in Plymouth northwestward through Kingston, Pembroke, Hanson and Whitman to Brockton. Included is a list of hotels, prominent buildings and places in Plymouth, as well as ten pages of advertisements by local businesses.
An uncommon map and guide. OCLC identifies two holders of the map (BPL and Harvard) and two of the pamphlet (Harvard and University of Delaware)
